    Afternoon and sorry about this.It's very possible ct scan do not pick it if its outside the 6hour window after the stroke,that does not mean he doesn't have a stroke.And to your question,yes stroke can present with weakness of a of an area of the body,speech difficulty,inability to control the bladder and defeacation,visual defect etc.It does not have anything to do spiritually from medical point of view,this is just a reduction in blood flow to the brain,or bleeding into the brain pls seek a neurologist for proper management
