Hypertension and strokes

Q: My father’s right side is paralyzed and he lost his speech for 2 years. Could this be a result of high BP (hypertension) or a blood stroke?

A: Uncontrolled blood pressure may lead to a stroke. A stroke can cause loss of speech and paralysis. However other medical conditions and trauma can also cause this type of loss of function. You should ask your father what condition he has been diagnosed with. Certain diseases, such as high blood pressure, can run in families.
