Hi and welcome back to the community,
This latest MRI information if specifically mentioning "hypointensities" which from my understanding would be referring to T1 black holes. Whilst I really hate to say this, but if your latest MRI has identified black holes and the 2014 periventricular (white matter) and centrum semiovale (deep white matter) lesions, MS could 'possibly' be at the very top of your more likely list, with your clinical symptoms and age group.
When do you see the neurologist and did you end up finding one who specialises in MS?
Thanks for your reply. I did end up finding a neuro who specializes in MS, but unfortunately my appointment isn't until June 26th. I have a cervical MRI scheduled for Saturday, so the neuro will be able to compare last year's brain MRI, this year's brain MRI, and the cervical MRI.
I had the same thing. hyperintensities are little round areas where the doc reads as light. Most of the time, hypointensities are the absense of light. It could be a number of things. Usually benign. See your Neuro to make sure.
I know June 26th seems a long time off. I always have to wait months to see my MS Specialist. They usually have a lot of patients since they are not that common. That does not make it any easier waiting.
Ugh, yeah, waiting is the worst.
I got my cervical spine MRI report back. I have a few "questionable ill-defined hyperintensities" on the axial spine view
