Our expert says:
A stroke is when something causes a blockage to the blood flow to the brain. This causes an oxygen shortage and damage to the brain cells, causing permanent disability. It could be due to a clot in the blood vessel or if a blood vessel breaks and cause bleeding. Sometimes when someone gets TB of the brain, the infection can cause a blockage and damage to the brain.
Treatment will depend on the cause, it may be an operation or medicine, and it may involve physiotherapy and rehabilitation for a few months.
