Thank you for the question.
Encephalomalasia means softening of the brain. Encephalomalasia can occur in everyone regardless of race, age, and gender. Encephalomalasia can also occur in newborns. Our brain as the center for regulating our body functions, if encephalomalasia occurs, it will affect other body functions.
The cause of encephalomalacia can be caused by a hemorrhagic stroke that you suffered previously. Other causes of encephalomalasia:
ischemic stroke head injury infection aging process (rare) Symptoms can include:
dizziness can't control body movements vertigo blindness severe headache mood changes In the case of encephalomalacia there is no proven effective treatment. Treatment is only intended to prevent further and wider brain damage due to existing causes.
You should consult this matter back to your Neurologist. The suggestions that I can give:
if you feel dizzy, you should stop your activity and sit or lie down taking your doctor's medication regularly to keep your blood pressure normal or stable, don't smoke, live a healthy life by exercising lightly and eating healthy food and balanced nutrition. Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.
