does this mean I have MS?

There is a 5 mm focus of T2w signal hyperintensity adjacent to the frontal horn of the
right lateral ventricle. There is also a 3 mm focus of T2 w signal hyperintensity anteriorly
in the right basal ganglia. There is a tiny focus of T2 w signal hyperintensity in the
deep/juxtacortical left frontal white matter. The white matter signal is otherwise normal.
There is no cerebellar signal abnormality. There is no focus of restricted diffusion.

Hi there, i'm JJ the community leader of the MS community and just came across your question...

Something has definitely been going on but its not necessarily a neurological condition like MS though, diagnosing MS is still complicated even after decades of tweeking the MS Mcdonald diagnostic criteria and rarely dx'd on the results of just 1 MRI. Did you also have a spinal MRI and i'm asking because MS commonly causes brain and or spinal cord lesions and depending on your symptoms and or clinical signs of neurological abnormality, its possible for a spinal MRI will add to your full diagnostic picture.

Hope that helps......JJ
