My husband s doctor said that results of a MRA and MRI showed that he had had a couple of mini strokes near the base of his brain. My daughters and I have noticed him almost having anger issues,not able to kid around as he once did. Could this be a symptom of a mini stroke?

hi this is siva from chennai.... three weeks back my father was died because of sudden heart attack with stroke. we tried to save by taking him to the nearest hosipital but could not. the reports was given after the first aid. it is mention like he got hypertension.
my 22 yr. old son has been experiencing high blood pressure which according to charts he is in stage 1 hypertension. The latest reading was 151 over 93. The last 2 weeks he s experienced something not right in his upper left shoulder/chest area. (uncomfortable or light pain) He did see his doctor (a family physician) and had a EKG done. His doctor stated that he has some constriction going on therefore the blood flows back. she put him on some blood pressure pills (I don t recall the name) to calm the vessels. Our history is as follows: His great grandfather died of a heart attack at age 49, his great uncle who was in his sixties died of a heart attack, his grandmother had Chronic kidney disease in her fifties (she had to go on dialyis) and she did have a stroke. I am the mother and also have Kidney disease like my mother. I am concerned about my son. My son has to go back in two weeks to have some blood work done. I m just wondering if this is enough testing. Could there be a blockage? Should he see a cardiologist?
