Hello.

White matter lesions in brain and the spinal cord are not seen exclusively in MS. There are a number of vascular disorders, leukodystrophies and trauma as causes of the white matter lesions.

Can you mention if you have symptoms suggestive of demyelination? Have you been screened for MS?

Regards
