Not usually: Stroke in the back of the brain can present with visual hallucinations or even blindness. However, most stroke patients (88% in one study) present with asymmetric facial weakness, arm weakness and or speech difficulty. Delusions and hallucinations are clearly not normal - see a primary care provider as soon as possible to find out what is causing these symptoms.
