Yes. Hopefully that is not your true blood pressure, I have never seen a BP that high in 15 years' worth of medical practice; the answer to your question is that if you haven't had a stroke, mini or otherwise, so far, you are lucky. You need to get that BP under control and asap.
Yes.. ..And BP that high would tend to lead not only to "mini-strokes" but also to stokes that end your life quickly. If you were lucky enough to only have mini-stokes then multi-infarct dementia would soon follow.
