Thanks for that explanation. Your negative thoughts about another stroke are not uncommon, we all have that terrible feeling initially. Good that you are into exercising, that is the only way that things will improve.
I'm sure the medical profession uses the word 'stroke' to cover a multitude of unexplained complaints when the brain is the only obvious fault. I have a friend who collapsed on the floor of his house and laid there for three days unable to summon the energy to act. Two years later he has no joint stiffness, no faulty arm or leg movements, no droopy face muscles and can talk without problem. His case is labelled 'stroke' for want of a better description, I expect yours came under the same heading!
