Brain MRI
Jan 15, 2012
Hello Everyone,

I am new here

I have a couple questions.
Ok, Now, I had a Brain MRI due to severe Migraines. Also tingling in back of head. It was done just as a preventative by the Nuero doc.
As I was waiting for my results, I also had an appointment to see my podiatrist due to tingling in my feet. Which I thought was due to my ugly bunions but was told no, could possibly be Nueropathy? Was asked how my blood sugar is I am borderline Type 2 on meds for it as well as Hypothyroid but NOT full type 2. The Podiatris is trying a high dose of Vit B12 to see if that works right now. I also have Fibromyalgia as well as had fusion C5-C6,
C6 -C7 Titaniam plate metal screws done back in 2006. Did have a MRI of Cervical neck recenty everything in tacted.

Have had some issues with tingling with fingers as well, but neck dose kick up every so often. I do have left side copression of spinal cord on C4 to C5 but it is no bad but dose tend to aggrivate the C5 nerve. So it is something that I do tend to deal with and have to take care of.

Well bhack to the Brain MRI. I get a call from my Nuero doc, and he said the brain looks good but the MRI shows White Dots and alot of them? He said they were NOT strokes or Tumors. He said he seen this in a thousand of patients in the age group of 30 and over (I am 46) but that I have alot of them. He asked how I was feeling, and if I have started my migraine med which is Topemax and taht I have a appointment with him and he wants to further discuss this with me.

Now, my sister, as well as a freind of mine and my father in law who did have a stroke all had Brain MRI's over the age of 30, and Did NOT have White Spots.
The other day, I had to go for a routine eye exam, which everything was fine, and my eye doc asked how my migraines were and asked how the Topemax was working (since he knew cause you have to update your file) and I told him about the Brain MRI and told him exactly what the Nuero doc said and just asked him have you ever heard of White Spots on the Brain? He said yes. It could be MS......Well, I was like, I was wondering if anyone here has heard of White Dots on the Brain Possibly being MS.

Sorry for the long story.. I have so much crap going on whith my health Idk what the heck it could be:dizzy: crazy!!

Just was wondering if anyone has heard of White Dots on the Brain and MS?

Hope everyone is feeling well!!!!!!!
