My unexpected stroke

I was traveling to a nearby base to go to the commissary, we are retired military so we go about once a month.  Well when we got there I had uncontrollable muscle spasms in my foot and lower leg and didn't think anything of it was just different.  Well got my shopping done and me and the kids and grandkids were going to sit down to eat and the right side of my body started going numb.  I didn't understand it and waited until the next day to go to the emergency room and my good pressure was 238/143 and they treated me and I have been following a strict regime ever since and manage with medicine to keep everything in control.
