I had an MRI of my brain done, my doctor thinks I may have multiple sclerosis. The MRI reports early microvascular ischemic changes. I have what I call episodes . I get numbness, tingling, and a feeling of nausea and syncope. Does this mean I may in face have MS?
First of all, Multiple sclerosis cannot be diagnosed by microvascular ischemic changes in the MRI. These changes means you could have vasculitidis (an autoimmune disease affects the blood vessels), SLE, Sarcoidosis or ischemia. Therefore, you should ask an immunologist for help.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
