MTHFR
In my neurologist search to diagnose me recently with new medical changes (I am a 31 YR F) with a history of MI three years ago.  I have been having fatigue, chronic hiccups, muscle twitching(mainly in upper arms), ON bilateral.  I do have a family history of early coronary events and DVTs.  She did numerous labs tests (ANA, sed rate, b-12, etc all the rest were WNL) Except methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase mutation and Factor V.  I understand the Factor V, but I do not understand the implications of the MTHFR.  Other background you may need to know I have had well-controlled epilepsy since I was 16.  I had a MRI that showed 3 lesions that were new in my right temporal, right frontal and left frontal as well as high signal abnormlities in the peri-atrial white matter.  Could anyone help with the methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase mutation?
