With her hypertension, it could very well be a warning sign. Even if she's taking blood pressure medication, it may not be enough to prevent a stroke or heart attack. I ignored the warning signs for too long and had a stroke three weeks ago. I was one of the lucky ones because I'm still here to tell about it. Make your mother see a doctor now before it's too late.
