Hi, I am a 47-year-old female, who had a mild stroke last Tuesday, 11/24/15. I walked in at Kaiser Hospital ER with a 225/112 bp...I was still conscious and walking normal as people described it. I was sent home the next day but with 4 medications which included Lisinopril, Lipitor (cholesterol), Aspirin, Amlodipine, which I will be taking for life..sad but true.
I suppose people like your husband and myself have a different way of taking the stroke into our system. Like what the doctors told me, I am lucky, that I am able to walk, no speech problems and my right arm and leg are well.
Please see a doctor soon.
