Hi this is Dr Stan and I will try to help you. Lacunar Infarcts or "strokes" can be silent at the time they happen.
they can affect many different areas of the brain and usually are found on a MRI or CT scan. They may be caused by small blood clot or cholesterol plug. They can cause memory or concentration issues depending on the location. A cardiac work-up would be indicated to see if you have some irregular heart rhythm that may be the source of your problem. May I suggest you discuss this with your doctor so appropriate testing can be prescribed. I hope this information is beneficial to you. Please feel free to ask me any additional questions. Thank you for allowing me to assist you.
