I also have had bad headaches (migraines) and white spots were found on a ct scan and then later on a follow up mri. My neurologist said they were from the migraines. I have my doubts but at this point I haved no other answers. I have always received some relief using imitrex for my headaches.But when they got worse I used Topamax which helped alot, just research because of some side effects that could be serious. Prayer also was the biggest help.

This sounds exactly what I have been going though for the past year. I had 2 white spots on the right side last year and this year they found 4-5. Kinda concerning to me but the Neurologist seems to think it is nothing to be concerned about.  She just said to continue the medication and see you in three months. I am going to go for a second opinion.  I don't want to be taking medication for the rest of my life if I don't have to. My headaches are excruciating and are on one side of my head. I know what your mom feels like when she says it feels like it is a death sentence. It is a pain like no other. Without a rest, it doesn't stop for anything, even if you have had enough. I hope she can find out what is causing her migraines. I will continue to try and find a Doctor who will help find the cause and not just put a bandaid on it like medication.
