Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Stroke could be a lesion of MS too as irreversible changes and demyelination can mimic a lesion like stroke on CT scan and T1 lesions, we call them black hole lesions.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
