I had an MRI done because of right arm pain associated with high blood pressure because my dr. wanted to rule out brain lesion and aneurysm (had an arachnoid cyst removed from underneath brain in 92)and the results were non-specific white matter and signs of small vessel disease. What does this mean? My Internist said he wasn't worried about either, but in the meantime, the pain is still there. What does non specific white matter and small vessel disease mean? I'm 40 years old, so does that have anything to do with these findings?
