My 16 y/o son has right occipital subcortical juxtacortical white

My 16 y/o son has right occipital subcortical juxtacortical white matter lesions verified by two MRI’s. Before we adopted him he was exposed to alcohol, methamphetamine, and who knows what else, and was severely abused as a baby. What could we be looking at other than MS? He is asymptomatic for anything MS related.

My 16 yr old son just noticed an enlarged occipital node at the back of his head 3 days has grown in size from approx. 1cm x 1cm to 2cm x 1.5cm over the past 3 days. It is non tender and moveable per Pediatrician. He has had cold sxs and sore throat and most importantly headaches for 3 weeks, strep is neg. Tylenol and Ibuprofen do not make a difference. No sinus infection sxs, no ear infection per MD today, afebrile, no drainage either. What do you think? The headaches concern me the most. Please advise. Thank you very much!!

Should I be concerned about a reoccuring occipital headache (lower back of my head, top of my neck). Is it just muscle ache from hours on the laptop? (Doing end of year finances....) I sit on my bed against a wedge bolster with my feet on the bed too. I have had sudden sharp pain there that only lasts 1/2 a sec several times this past year - like while walking out into the garden... My history in a nutshell: I am in good health, 62, no diabetes, no heart or lung problems, low BP, pulse and cholesterol, no smoking (occasional 2nd hand smoke). I do have mild scoliosis in my lumbar and thoracic spine and moderate kyphosis (? - hunched over) but am still active and working on our house. I had an over active thyroid, but my numbers returned to normal over 5 years ago after replacing most of the metal fillings in my teeth with white ones (high electrical charge measured - could have been stimulating the thyroid). But my question is about my aching head. Thanks for your advice in advance. Ruth Foster I m on Apple Health - I ll ask my doctor at my appt next month... don t want to pay to be told to ask her!
