Suffer from severe migraines. MRI report showing hyperintense lesions on the white mater, lesion in the frontal lobe. What does it mean?

I am a 48 year old femail. Two months of severe migraines that wake me up in the middle of the night only. Imitrex helps. MRI states: White matter: There are 2 small T2 hyperintense lesions in the white matter. There is a lesion in the anterior aspect of the right frontal lobe and a lesion along the periventricular margin of the left lateral ventricl in the left frontal lobe. Early chronic microvasular disease and demyelination could have a similar appearance. No evidence of an intracranial mass, hemorrrhage or acute ischemia . What now? Where can I look for more treatment? Is there treatment?

Hi, welcome to HCM.
Such hyperintense signals are commonly seen in brain. It is just a age related changes in brain due to micro vascular origin. You need not to worry about that. Otherwise MRI is completely normal.
Migraine is not related to brain parenchyma at all. You need to continue your routine medication for migraine.

Hope I have answered your query.
