What does this MRI report indicate?
Hello and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your question and understand your concerns.
If symptoms you describe subsided within 24 hours you probably had a TIA, (transient ischemic attack).
However, those MRI findings don't support neither stroke or TIA.
MRI ( diffusion weighted images ) could be diagnostic for TIA up to five days after it happened.
Nonspecific punctate areas on MRI are mainly related to changes due to uncontrolled blood pressure.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Get a new MRI done.
In such case, I think a neurological examination and a new MRI of brain to reevaluate stroke possibility are necessary.
If doubts raised about any lumbosacral spine disorder such herniated disc disease, spondylosis, x-rays and MRI of lumbosacral spine are necessary as well.
Hope I helped you.
