Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Strokes involving the posterior circulation can cause vertigo, imbalance while walking and double vision. In most cases the symptoms slowly improve/resolve. A few may have residual symptoms.

If your symptoms are recent in onset and not since 1997, you need to be evaluated for fresh stroke. Getting the scans repeated is warranted.

Hope this answers your query.
