I'm new here and was hoping someone on here could help me understand the MRI results I got back this week. My neurologist thinks there is no cause for concern, but due to the symptoms I've been having (right eye twitches and keeps wanting to close, regular extreme fatigue, problems thinking, problem remembering words, clumsiness, occasional nausea, feeling hungover without drinking, vibrations in limbs, around mouth and in my head, drunk feeling in legs (which has thankfully passed)) and which are gradually getting worse, on and off, I am still concerned. :) Could I have MS? Early symptoms of Alzheimer? Lyme? I'm 43 years old. Results have been translated from Dutch, so they may be a little oddly worded. Any help much appreciated. Here goes:
Examination scanned according to standard protocol.
The fourth ventricle is normal and in situ. Normal brainstem and cerebellum normal supratentorial ventricular system. Normal cortical growth pattern.
FLAIR recordings show some white matter lesions mainly subcortical on both sides: atypical. No typical picture of MS.
No space-occupying process.
FLAIR images do not show any haemorrhage residues. Diffusion images show no diffusion restriction.
Atypical white matter lesions on both sides most pronounced bifrontally and subcortically. Atypical and probably vascular in origin. No typical distribution pattern for MS. No RIP links.
