    Hi good video! The only thing I’d like to mention though is lacunar is from lacunae which means a gap or empty space.

    Question, is it reversible? If it’s mild that is.

  19. Dr Noor on October 7, 2021 at 8:33 am

    Thank you sooooo much

  20. Sophia Cristina on October 7, 2021 at 8:33 am

    Your videos are very good for medicine enthusiastic persons that are too layman to easily digest technical terms, very well done, respectful work.
    By the way, someone can explain me if the Atherosclerosis looks alike an infection and/or if it have pus inside it (since the intern composition looks alike)?
    Does the brain heals itself when there is an Atherosclerosis that is not inflated enough to block the veins? How can someone prevent having Atherosclerosis (apart from tobacco)?
    Can certain natural or day-to-day substances (that is not a remedy) "solver" this Atherosclerosis plaque or prevent it to form?

    had my stroke on October 18th, 2018 at around 2:30pm. I made a full recovery, but they still have no idea what caused it. they said I had high blood pressure but are still looking for an actual cause because I was so young when it happened. I was 30 which is apparently very young to have a stroke. so just in case they put me on heart medication and anti cholesterol along with aspirin. I was at therapy when it happened and the hospital was right down the street so I was able to get help fairly quickly. I would begin to lose function of the left side of my body, and then it would settle down and i would regain function again. that happened five to six times before it finally settled down, they kept me in the hospital for two days to monitor me.

  25. Shan Vijay on October 7, 2021 at 8:38 am

    How long does a patient who had stroke due to a blood clot need to stay on medication? I been hearing different opinions from different doctors some said life long some said 6 months some said 1 year. Why is the opinion so divided? Please could you clarify, thank you.

  26. George Loudon on October 7, 2021 at 8:39 am

    Can you have strokes without an clots?

    Likely, I felt that I could not focus and having hard time to read. The distraction was so significant that I had tried to read out loud to bring back my attention. However, as I read out loud, my mind cannot catch up with the meaning of the words. I read a sentence but it seem like I’m reading word by word and even the word just not make sense! I also starting to have problem with my writting. Even simple words like contact, confuse, catch,… take me time to spell! I’m going to university next year and this freaking me out! Can anyone help me out, please?

  34. Rayana All on October 7, 2021 at 8:47 am
