Help interpting MRI results

I was wondering if anything in the results of my MRI could be related to dystonia ?  As well what do the different focus shape mean ?

MRI FINDINGS:  No prior studies.  CSF-containng spaces are normal.  Specifically, there is no evidence of atrophy or hydrocephalus.

Axial and sagittal images show two small nonspecific foci of hyperintensity on T2 weighted images in the subcortical white matter of the corona radiata of the right frontal lobe.  One is a globular focus, about 4mm. in long located near the gray-white junction.  I believe these are located near the precentral gyrus.  Unfortunately, their morphology is nonspecific.  There is thrid focus of hyperintesity in the subcortical white mater of the left frontal lobe more inferiorly and anteriorly, this is about 5mm. in maximal dimension and again in nonspecfic.

CRPS aka RSD ... have not been dx'd with it but have wondered about it possibly being releated so some of my dystonia spasm in which there is a lot of swelling, discoloration, and burning pain.  I keep being told that swelling and discoloration does not go with dystonia, however many people with CRPS also have dystonia.  My biggest issue with all this is my CRPS type of symptoms are only present when the spasms are and from what I read in all the medical lit, CRPS symptoms on continious.  

Would be very interested in hearing from others on this too
