Confusing MRI

A recent MRI says, "remote superior left cerebellar hemisphere CVA." Does this mean that I had a stroke and did not know it? The MRI was ordered because of left side pain, involving leg, foot, arm, and face.

Hello and sorry for the late reply.

If there is ischemia of the cerebellum, then it should cause symptoms related to cerebellum, like difficulty walking, tremors, difficulty with fine tasks and an inability to talk. MRI is an imaging study and it needs to be correlated clinically. Please discuss this with your doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
