I was diagnosed with high blood pressure 4 years ago.

I was diagnosed with high blood pressure 4 years ago. I am currently on Lisinopril daily. This morning I had a few dizzy spells and was lightheaded. These symptoms are new to me. Upon taking my morning BP it was high (like it normally is for me), but my pulse rate was at 49 beats per minute.

I am 35 year old woman, non smoker, exercise, not overweight and was diagnosed with high blood pressure after undergoing a complete physical for lief insruance 2 months ago and everything was great. I am now being tested for renal artery stenosis, I have had chronic UTIs since I was about 2-3 years old, could this lead to RAS?

I think my son may have had a mini stroke about a month ago that was not diagnosed because of other health concerns at the time. He is only 10 years old. His sypmptoms were extreme, sudden headache- he was screaming and holding his head, slurred speach, confusion, his blood pressure was extremely high,and his platelet count ws also very elevated at the time because of the other health issues I mentioned. This happened 2 times within a couple of days and left him very ill. WOuld it still show on an mri? Is it important to diagnose at this point if it were a stroke?

My father in law has just had a check with his blood pressure at 180/90. Last night he complained that his right side of his face was numb, he said he drooled a bit in the morning. I thought it could be a mild stroke but he wasn t complaining about his arm or legs. He went to the doctor and now they are doing more tests today.He s a smoker, 76 yo and very active for his age. He has been diagnosed with prostate cancer about a year ago but reasonably stable.We want to take him to Europe as he loves to travel and thought this would be the best time now. We were planning this in 3 weeks time to leave for 2 1/2 weeks. We are worried that travel will create more problems or spike his blood pressure.
