Thank you for contacting Healthcare magic.
The signs for suspected brain stroke of posterior circulation (small brain-cerebellum and brain stem) include:
Dizziness, double vision, imbalance while walking, difficulty in swallowing, slurred speech, etc.
Dizziness alone usually does not occur in stroke.
So, please observe for the above symptoms, if you have them, you should go to ER, otherwise you can wait.
Please get back for any follow up queries.
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX consultant neurologist
