Would an MRA on the brain show vertebral artery occlusion or insufficiency?

Yes, but. why is a 22-year-old worried about vertebral artery occlusion? Does it have anything to do with something you learned from Doctor Google?

I am a 33 yr fit female with hypertension, white matter changes on MRI and vertebral artery stenosis found in mra. Could I have a stroke soon?

NO. Those don't predict a stroke. You can occlude a vertebral (100%) and not have a stroke as the brain receives other blood supply that is connected. Be sure your blood pressure is controlled and keep it there! Read more...
Perhaps. You are probably at higher risk than average for having a stroke. I would recommend taking an adult aspirin a day and modify your risk factors (blood pressure control, healthy diet, weight loss, smoking cessation, cholesterol control, etc.). Speak to your physician for more information. Read more...

33 year old female with hypertension and received mra results that show mild to moderate vertebral artery stenosis. What does this mean usually?

Need to be watched. Means you have early narrowing of blood vessels in your neck. Which can progress and cause further narrowing and increase risk of stroke. No surgery needed now, but you have to be on high doses if statins and an Aspirin a day. Repeat carotid doppler every 2 years. If you have high blood pressure or diabetes , should be well controlled.
