Hi Neha,

Thank you for posting your query.

MRI brain findings of your mother are common findings, and can occur in a variety of conditions. These include migraine, ischemia of brain (less blood flow) and demyelinating illness (where the covering of the nerves get damaged).

The most common cause is migraine.

There is no need to worry about this finding.

Based on your mom's symptoms, the neurologist would be able to come to a conclusion regarding the diagnosis. Medical treatment would help her get better.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
Senior Consultant Neurologist
