Please look at my MRI? Opinions please!

Hi guys

So I had an MRI this morn after a series of odd symptoms over last few years. I'm early 30s.
- brain fog, fatigue, very mild lack of sensation in lower legs that lasted a few weeks. A cob web feeling under eye that came on and off for a week a few times in one year, some word finding problems, adrenaline rushes that would last all day every day that tools months to stop.

All of these symptoms I no longer have but a brain fog and a bit if fatigue.

At any rate, they gave me a CD today of my MRI. I looked at a bunch of the MRI pics. Ive never looked at an MRI before, but after glancing at a few this morn i put up a few on Flickr that i had questions on. So I wanted your opinion on these few here. I know you guys aren't doctors, just wanted to know your two cents!

I help the arrow key of my mouse under the places I was curious about.


1) I put up a series pics where my mouse follows this little white dot on the right side. In every pic it was there just about in the SWI image series. It moves up in the pic as the MRI camera moved. This particlr MRI image part is a a susceptibility weighted imaging. Anyone know- is that just a piece of normal structure? I almost feel like it there is another white dot, smaller, on the other side making me feel its symmetrical and therefore normal.

2) let me know if anything else stands out.

There were so many pics, so I picked a handful that I had questions on.

Thanks SO MUCH everyone for your support/help!!

OPINION: ask your nuerologist. They should know the anatomy well enough to tell you if that's a piece of fat or a normal vein or a normal variation of a vein or possibly something else. They get the big money to tell you. Best of luck.

Hi Midori,

The best thing to do if you want a review quickly is to request the written radiologist's report also. It usually takes 24 hours or so, but if I wait a day to pick up my CD of the MRIs, the written report is already on it. It will state whether those are lesions or not and, if so, whether they're "suggestive of demyelinating disease like MS" or suggestive of something else entirely. It takes an expert to tell. Unless your brain is as cluttered as mine. :smile:

Here's what I get on my MRIs -- lots of MS-type lesions:

One of the first things I found out when I got my first brain/spine MRIs is that the creepiest looking parts, to me, turned out to be the healthiest parts, so your neuro would be the best one to go over those MRIs with you. And symptoms from all neurological problems are so similar that all they do is point to the fact that you need tests. And doctors' observations. And MRIs.

Good luck!
Dx'd with MS & HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy) 7/03 but must have had MS for 30 yrs before that. I've never taken meds for MS except 1 yr experiment on LDN. (I found diet, exercise, sleep, humor, music help me the most.)
