I think my mom just had a stroke, I am really worried

when i came home from school, my mom told me about what had happened to her when she was grocery shopping I decided to research it on the internet and found out that she had almost all the symptoms of a STROKE i went with her to get her blood pressure checked and it turned out that it was 160- which is considerably high.. does that mean that she really did have a stroke or was it just a warning that she will have a stroke??? please answer. I am only 15 and im really worried shes made an appointment on march12. but im really worried i cant wait until then

My grandfather just had two recently. Anyways if you notice anything different about her at this moment like if she's looked like she has aged or cannot move any parts of her body properly. Example: she can not move her arm or lip properly that is a pretty good sign she has undergone a stroke. Strokes can be fairly deadly and causes brain cells to die which can cause a lot of problems. I know people who have undergone a stroke and they didn't even know it. I'd get her to a hospital as soon as possible because if she did have one there is a pretty good chance she may have another one.
