In brief: Recommend assessment

Immediately. With both upper and lower limb weakness/sensation changes, you may be having a stroke, especially with a history of hypertension and prior cardiac cath.
Certain stroke can cause only sensory affects in specific areas, may be lacunar. Once stroke is ruled out, vertebral imaging can be done to identify radicular related issues. You may also have a polyneuropathy, but rule out stroke 1st.
