T2/T2 Flair white matter hyperintensities

Iam 56 yrs old male and after experiencing a pixel by pixel stream out in the vision 2 times within 2, 3 days, a small headache and lack of sleep, I had MRA and MRI of brain. MRA is normal. MRI report says: T2/T2 Flair white matter hyperintensities noted with no diffusion restriction consistant with small vessel changes
My Neuro doctor prescribed MYOGREL AP 75 and BETACAP PLUS 10 for the first time and for the second visit after 12 days, he prescribed BETAVERT TAB 8MG and NAXDOM 250 along with the first 2
Can you tell me what is the problem and what are the consequences and also what all precautions i have to take

Hi there. You neurologist has prescribed you myogrel or aspirin and clopidogrel, for thinning of blood may be sue to suspected small vessel ischemic disease, naxdom or naproxen for pain, or inflammation, betavert or betahistine for vertigo and betacaps or betamethasone which is a corticosteroid. I would also suggest you to undergo investigation for multiple sclerosis. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are loss of balance, muscle spasms, numbness in any area, problems with walking and coordination, tremors in one or more arms and legs. Bowel and bladder symptoms include frequency of micturition, urine leakage, eye symptoms like double vision uncontrollable rapid eye movements, facial pain, painful muscle spasms, tingling, burning in arms or legs, depression, dizziness, hearing loss, fatigue etc. You have many of these symptoms. The treatment is essentially limited to symptomatic therapy so the course of action would not change much whether MS has been diagnosed or not. Apart from clinical neurological examination MRI shows MS as paler areas of demyelination, two different episodes of demyelination separated by one month in at least two different brain location. Spinal tap is done and CSF electrophoresis reveals oligoclonal bands suggestive of immune activity, which is suggestive but not diagnostic of MS. Demyelinating neurons, transmit nerve signals slower than non-demyelinated ones and can be detected with EP tests. These are visual evoked potentials, brain stem auditory evoked response, and somatosensory evoked potential. Slower nerve responses in any one of these is not confirmatory of MS but can be used to complement diagnosis along with a neurological examination, medical history and an MRI and a spinal tap. Take care.
