Hey, I found info on those lesions, and I'm absolutely not a dr.....well, here, I did find one that lists a more not general, but a wider set of options, .....you will want to follow up with your dr, to make sure ....my research is anywhere near appropriate.... but I just copied most of that line and put it into google
Did your neurologist give you an MRI review, or explain what it meant?
I was told after my first MRI, that the results weren't back yet, and I never received the results until I went to sign for them. The FAX showed that they received it 5 hours after I had that very expensive test. I could see an abnormality, but he said in my records that it was a non-symptomatic lesion. I asked an online Dr., if a 5 mm round lesion, on my hypothalamus gland, and slightly right of the pituitary stalk, could cause a sudden abnormal movement disorder. He asked me to describe what happened. I described the movements, which also included uncontrollable laughing, and it occurred within an hour of taking a new Rx drug. He told me that in most cases, side effects would wear off, but my symptoms would persist, and he called my uncontrollable laughter, gelastic seizures. 358 online doctors agreed with him, but he said that I couldn't use him for diagnostic purposes, since he hadn't seen me.
After my 2nd MRI, four years later, I asked the specialist for an MRI review, and she rushed out of the room. I think that my head and neck tics would have caused distortions on my MRI. Their radiologist said that I still had the same size mass, but they thought it reflected a Rathke's cleft cyst, which are naturally occurring little cysts dividing the pituitary gland, but they can enlarge and cause pressure on the nearby optic tract, which is a common cause of double vision, which I doubt is your problem since you have multifocal lesions, but claim you haven't had a hemorrhagic stroke. You should look up ischemic strokes.
I don't know why doctors don't want to explain MRI results. They must think it's way over our heads, or they didn't learn how to conduct an MRI review. I wonder how many people are given their MRI review?
jerkylady you make sweeping generalizations, I would say most, if not all, people get results, esp if they want them
The chances are the double vision is due to cranial nerve palsy, which generally resolves on it's own. The MRI ruled out significant
structural abnormalities. Etiology of the palsy could be diabetes or aviral infection.
