My Dr. said my MRI/MRA showed signs of not only a storm of brain attacks but also of small vessel disease. What is that? How is it treated and what is that going to do to my life? I am only 48 years old.
My question too. I was diagnosed when I was 47 yrs. old. I'm now 52. At first they thought I had Multiple Sclerosis and have been receiving treatment. A recent MRI was done and I am now told small vessel disease “leukoaraiosis". I'm wondering what is going to happen. Do you have symptoms?
I was told that possible MS, but then SVD of the brain. risk factors smoking is mine, but others are high BP and diabetes. I ahve neurological symptoms as well. I started taking 81 mg aspirin everyday and it has helped a little bit, but I neeed to f/u with a specialist for additional answers
Good luck to everyone
