they did do a brain MRI at the same time. The findings are..
There is no intraparenchymal hemmorrhage, acute infarct, mass or midline shift. There is no hydrocephalus or extracerebral fluid collection. There is mild cortical volume loss and there are multiple subcortical deep white matter due to hyperintensities which are nonspecific. Some of these lesions do appear oval shaped and periventricular and this could represent demyelination or chronic ischemic microvascular change. The visualized portions of the orbits, paranasla sinuses, mastoid air cells, and sella are normal. Normal signal flow voids are noted at the skull base.
Impression: No acute infarct. Mild cortical volume loss and nonspecific subcortical and deep white matter due to hyperintensities. Differential includes demyelination or chronic ischemic microvascular change.
I don't understand this either. Does it lead one to lean toward MS?
Thanks for your help. I appreciate it. I'm in the process of trying to find a neurologist. I called the MS society, they sent me a list. I'd like to find someone who specializes in MS and Diabetes, but don't know how to find such a dr. I'm a little leary of my endos recommendation becuase I fear he'll just suggest someone in his "group".
