Symptoms would gradually improve

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms. Brain stroke is definitely a possibility based on your symptoms. The diagnosis can be confirmed by doing an MRI scan of brain.

Recovery does happen in cases of brain stroke, however, it may be slow. It may take a few weeks to get better.

I hope you are on appropriate medications such as aspirin.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
