Sudden onset of vertigo, nausea, mild headache. Referred to neurologist. Suggestions?

I am 29 Yld Female Healthy. 9 Dyas ago I had a sudden onset of vertigo and nausea. The following day I had a mild nagging headache in my left eye and neck pain . My doctor saw me the same day had an MRI the next day and got the results the following day. The results said several Foci white matter in frontal lobes. Possibly due to migranes which I didnt think I ever had I alwasy thoguht they were stress induced headaches behind my eyes. It also stated it was more then expected for someone my age. Sense the onset today being the 9th day I feel very tired all the time mild headache no nausea and dizzy/like I am in a cloud. I have been referred to a neurologist but my doctor says not to worry. Sould I?Also I am a military medic and I have PTSD and see a physcolgoist for this.I have a Neck injury buldging dics and a lumbar spine injury L5 herniated disc.Both are under control and good now. Thank You Cindy

Neurologist 's  Response
The multiple white matter abnormal foci at your age need further evaluation. Since there was an episode of nausea and vomiting also, I would not like to ignore them. The possible cause of these foci could be demyelination. The most common diagnosis with demyelination at your age would be multtiple sclerosis.
With a history of headaches other possible rare causes like CADASIL etc also need consideration. A neurology consultation is must to settle the matter. He will put you through some more tests which will help in arriving at a correct diagnosis.
Good luck.
