I would like to ask if there is anyone whose MRIs have shown a degree of Wallerian degeneration process in the brain? I have an area of this kind somewhere around the thalamus region. According to the radiologists' reports this area has been there for several years at
I haven't received an explanation of this phenomenon from my neuros. But as far as I understand, Wallerian degeneration is basically a certain type of degenerative process involving the nerve cells, that can be identified by mri imaging. I found a piece of information that suggests this process is usually found in later phases of MS, not early RRMS for example. But this information was not conclusive.
Has anyone heard about this type of degeneration? I'm only 37 with RRMs. This worries me a bit.
