Its the middle of the night for most of the members so dont be suprised if you dont get many responses for hours, if it goes onto the second page just write 'bump' and it will go back to the top.
I can't tell you much:
Hyperintensity = refer to areas of high intensity on particular types of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of the human brain
Subcortical = the portion of the brain located below the cerebral cortex
White matter = White matter is one of the two components of the central nervous system and consists mostly of myelinated axons. The other main component of the brain is grey matter
Parietal lobe function = The parietal lobes can be divided into two functional regions. One involves sensation and perception and the other is concerned with integrating sensory input, primarily with the visual system. The first function integrates sensory information to form a single perception (cognition). The second function constructs a spatial coordinate system to represent the world around us. Individuals with damage to the parietal lobes often show striking deficits, such as abnormalities in body image and spatial relations (Kandel, Schwartz & Jessel, 1991).
ischemic = unknown or of no known cause
I'm not a dr but what you've been told doesn't sound like it fully coresponds with your symptoms, specifically your loss of motor function, I would recommend you getting an MRI of your entire spine and a second opinion.
