I was diagnosed with white matter in my brain after a brain injury what l want to know can it lead to a stroke? I had slurred speech, shaking and unable to walk lately. I had to go to the ER and had a mri and in the report it said l had white matter again. Is the symptoms l was experiencing are sign of strokes. My mother and grandmother both had strokes but also l hepatic encephalopathy so l thought it was symptoms of my ammonia levels were high. Previously it was a 59 and l.had to be put back on lactulose but it was a 38 when l went to the ER. Should l be aware of signs of a stroke?

I had stroke may 17, 2015 and since then i sometimes feel like i am smoking. I have never smoked in my life. However it feel like i am breathing it in and out. It makes me short of breath, talking, swallowing and very tried when this happens. It happens anywhere, anytime, no certain time. What can i do and is it a worry for something else?
I also have another problem. All my life i have had a center part for my hairstyle. After my stroke i have developed a ridge along my part line that sinkes in. I notice it a lot by rubbing it and have had dr. and friends feel it.(not in my head) but they feel it and dont know what to say. Now the ridge has raised up and is lower on both sides. What kind of test or dr should i see about it?
I am 56, female, back to work full time, have fibromyalgia only I know about my health problems, weakness, and tried all time. I take a baby asprin and 75mg of wellbrutin only daily. Thanks
