microvascular ischemia

I have recently had an MRI of my brain. It was compared to one done in 2005. The report indicates there are several more high intensity foci and the already existing ones are more prominent in size and signal intensity. These foci are located in the subcortical white matter of the bilateral parietal lobes, although there are other ones in other parts of my brain. The report indicates progression of microvascular ischemia/demyelination. What are these two? What do they indicate and am I in danger. I have been living with a possible diagnosis of MS for years now?
