Doctors and nurses weren't able to get a blood pressure reading from my left arm. After I began falling for no reason, I had surgery to place a stent into my left carotid artery. It was 100 percent blocked.

I had a stroke in 2012. The cause was blockage in my right carotid artery. I had surgery to un-block it. I have never smoked or drunk.
