I had an MRI for numbness/tingling in my feet and left hand

Customer Question

I had an MRI for numbness/tingling in my feet and left hand that had been progressing for a few weeks. I have no comorbiditys. I'm a healthy 35 yr old female. The MRI I was told was "normal" after reading the report I see it says "There are a few small foci of nonspecific T2 hyperintensity of the subcortical cerebral white matter likely due to microangiopathic changes. What does this mean and can it be the cause of my symptoms?

Does your doctor think you have MS?

She mentioned it as a possible cause but the MRI says " No evidence of demyelinating process"

Oh good.

Then that means there is no MS
