This is Dr. David

this varies from patient to patient

many factors can cause a hemorrhagic stroke, not just uncontrolled blood pressure.

high cholesterol, diabetes, prior smoking or alcohol use can all cause blood vessels to be weak and break in the brain causing bleeding and a stroke.

did you or your husband have a hemorrhagic stroke off of blood pressure medications?
