You need follow up with your neurologist with these findings. The description could fit with possible diagnosis of multiple sclerosis . If this is MS then there are treatments available ( not a cure but treatment to help slow progression )

The MRI findings need careful review by your neurologist. The description could fit with other possible causes. Vascular diseae could lead to similar type findings . You physical exam and history are pertinent to interpreting the MRI as well..Your MRI is examined with this context in mind .

Your evaluation may be looked at as a work in progress . You may see increased certainty by review of actual images by neurologist and history and physical. You may have other studies considered . Follow up of the MRI may be repeated down the road of time such as 6 and 12 months .
