    Excellent explanation!

    If having a rupture stroke on left or right brain and cells are damaged… Is it damaged for good or can it be regained after months of rehabilitation? For example can you regain left hand motor skills after having stroke on right brain?

    Can a past stroke cause a brain hemorrhage in the future?

    I had a left hemisphere stroke, and had complete paralysis on my right side. But there is no problem with speech. In fact, I am told that right after stroke, I kept talking in English which is my second language. That’s actually the only funny thing about this ordeal.

    Please disregard my last comment, as now I feel fine it just went away. Also please forgive my grammar mistakes, for some reason I couldn’t figure out how to correctly spell for the life of me.

    The older you’re have better chances of surviving a stroke. I wish my childhood friend could see this video, but he died at 36. He also was very overweight.

    Magnesium chloride cleans blood vessels and therefore prevents and avoids stroke. Because it removes the fats from the blood vessels and impurities inside them that clog them up. It improves the varicose veins as well or makes them disappear, and lowers the pressure of those who have high blood pressure, making it lower and normalize and never getting high again. But it has to take for a while and then stop. It cannot take forever, because otherwise it may give some problem. Hope it helps everyone and hugs !

    Very informative video Dr.. I had a ischemic stroke 2 yrs. ago that effected the right rear half of my brain. It was a silent stroke that I didn’t even realize was happening. It did not effect my motor skills at all. I was confused and lost some peripheral vision on my left side causing a minor fender bender accident while driving my tractor trailer rig. I had never heard of visual memory loss before and that is what I believe contributed to my accident. I didn’t realize until seeing your video what visual memory was. Thank you for explaining something my neurologist couldn’t explain to me.

    I had a stroke on my right side. Which effected my strength on my left side like leg and arm. My speech was effected a little but returned to normal after couple days. My left eye was a little droppy and had trouble when thinking of the words i wanted to speak. Words got messed up causing me to stop talkimg as indidnt know what to say next. I consider myself luck to most. Mine wasnt as severe. But docs said i could have another one once youve had one already. Im 47. I did experiance confusion and headaches.dizzyness like i was gonna pass out. My heart was racing and i felt very tired also and shirt winded

    Six and a half years ago, I had a bleed on the left side of my brain which has left me paralysed down my right side, I was 45 at the time.  I had a haemorrhagic stroke and was in 3 different hospitals over a period of 6 months.  The first 2 weeks were the worst and at first, when questioned, I said I lived somewhere completely different to actually where I WAS living!  Then I couldn’t remember the name of the road I lived in but it all came back to me eventually.  For me the worst is that I have lost my independence, I no longer drive or work.  I need a stick to walk around the house with and when I am outside, I am in a wheelchair.  I WAS right handed so had to learn to write with my left.  Stroke can be such a cruel thing but you have two choices…do you want to go on or not……..I chose to go ON and I am very happy, I have my partner who is my carer and is an absolute ANGEL 🙂

  22. shammy dammy on November 20, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    I had a right hemisphere stroke in 2010 from a paradoxical embolism. I still have a lot of the problems described, even though I seem ‘fine’.

  23. MEanME on November 20, 2019 at 1:12 pm

    It’s not myth, mine is big…

  24. stephanie beth on November 20, 2019 at 1:13 pm

    My thalamic stroke was on my right and I have my pain and physical issues on the same side.
    I have vision, hearing and sensory problems. I have lost a lot of my vocabulary and ability to control emotions . I am 33. Stroke is awful I have little to no support.

  25. jack hamilton on November 20, 2019 at 1:14 pm

    I had a stroke 2014 November 8,it was on my right side of the brain effects weakness on my left.

  26. Robin W on November 20, 2019 at 1:16 pm

    Due to domestic violence, I was punched on the right side of my head. It was caught within 24 hours. I lost most of my memory. I remember feeling in awe and very childlike to the world. It took 6 years for me to be able to relax on my left side to walk normal again. Puzzle piecing has always been a problem since the stroke. I was 18 or 19, I still can’t remember that ! I couldn’t read or write.Sometimes my brain seems to shut down and won’t let me go forward with things I want to do.Its like somebody has pulled the brake and if I struggle to do it anyway, it’s a complete fail ! Also sometimes I see things in front of me, but can’t comprehend on what it is I’m seeing. Or look for something , find it but don’t know I’ve found it because my brain just erases my visual on it …I Had to relearn many new skills. Now i learn with my hands instead of my comprehension of my brain . I was a strait A student before, now im lucky to read directions even after all these years . I Forgot how to cook and I was raised making everything from scratch without a cookbook, now I have to use one and pray I understand it when I look. I don’t always get reading, sometimes I feel like I’m trying to read another launguage. This is still flustraiting even today after over 30 years.
    I have no idea how long I was in the hospital. I don’t know why I was never helped to evolve up out of it somewhat. Like no physical theripy, no help with memory or anything . Just sent home to the man who did this to me, and he left when I arrived . I believed he feared jail . But , I still have many issues that upset me.The worst part of the memory was, I had a baby and Had no idea who he was, we climbed cabnets together to find things to eat. You might say we grew up together.
    You were explaining things on both sides of the brain , why would I have symptoms from both sides ?

  27. Selena Queen on November 20, 2019 at 1:16 pm

    Well I guess I’m one of the unlucky ones who had a hemorrhagic stroke so I’m just screwed for life thanks lady

  28. Frances Edwards on November 20, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    My son father had a stroke May 6, 2019 . Part of his brain was removed. His left side is weak. He could move his right hand and leg

  29. Kevin Devlin on November 20, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    My fiancee had a stroke 3 years ago . A can deal with the paralysis she has with her arm and leg but her personality changes are making it difficult for me . How long can this take to go back ??

  30. Ada Cortez on November 20, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    Almost every comment is from people who have experienced a stroke… And then there’s me. I’m studying for a test.

  31. Me ! Oey on November 20, 2019 at 1:20 pm

    I ve coma from hemorragic stroke 2 years ago. Get better. Only becoming disability

  32. David Dorris on November 20, 2019 at 1:22 pm

    I have been diagnosed with PPMS. In 2013 I got my neurologist to order an MRV while undergoing an MRI. The MRV shows a CVT (see my profile picture). Do you think that there’s any chance that the two may be related? The doctors that I have shown this image to will not even acknowledge the image. How can I get treated for this?

  33. Montaut H on November 20, 2019 at 1:24 pm

    April 15th this year. I am so confused.

  38. Cynthia K. on November 20, 2019 at 1:32 pm

    I know it has probably been pointed out: but the header at 3:00 should be Hemispheric not Hemisheric..

  42. Francis Farmer on November 20, 2019 at 1:34 pm

    The homunculus is not a brain area–it’s the cortical representation of your body. You can talk about the homunculi of the primary motor cortex (located in the precentral gyrus) or the primary sensory cortex (located in the postcentral gyrus), but you don’t actually call the strip of cortex ‘the homunculus’.

    I’m sorry for being a pedantic ass, but it was bothering me!

  43. Awsumdude123 on November 20, 2019 at 1:37 pm

    I think I just had a stroke a couple hours ago 0_o I was recording a video when my body started to feel numb. I then started to hear ringing in my ears. For a minute or 2, I could not see at all out of my eyes and I was stumbling around. I felt like I was gonna throw up and almost like I was gonna die 0_0 But, I prayed to God to let me live and then my sight and balance started to come back. I had this weird sensation like there was hot water in my head for a couple minutes, but then it went away. I feel ok now, but I kinda feel a bit more stupid. I dunno :/ I’m a straight A student in school (lowest grade= 97%), so I hope this doesn’t affect me. I had one in the past too, but it seems like after that, I got SMARTER! It’s kinda weird…

    I have learnt from this that the RH side is more protective.

    I had a stroke in feb 2013. I had a operation on the 8th july. The doctor cut into my neck and cleaned my carotid arrtery, as i had suffered a few smaller strokes, which i did not know about. I have a lot of trouble on my right side. I cannot cut my food up. Also my memory is terible that is how i spell terrible as i use a spell checker all the time.I think i am stuck like this now. I am 52 from England.

  49. MEanME on November 20, 2019 at 1:45 pm

    Rubbish.
    How old is this video?

  50. Capt Charles Cross on November 20, 2019 at 1:47 pm

    Great video. It answers a lot of my questions.

    I’ve had 3 TIA,s in the last three years. Effects are, memory loss, left side weakness, vision changes, loss of emotional control, and vertigo. Loss of co-ordination on my left side. Can no longer write cursive and printing is only barely readable. Loss of concentration and my math skills are essentially gone. Some of it is very slowly coming back.

    It started slowly coming back when I started taking a tablespoon of coconut butter every morning with my coffee.
