Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today. Did they rule out the obvious such as brain tumor or aneurism?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I had an CT Scan done about two years ago and what was found were three deep white matter leasion.
Expert:  Camille RN replied 7 years ago.
Did they rule out multple sclerosis..white matter lesions are often assosicated with MS.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No, I have not. I mentioned that to my PCP and she told me that only occurs to people in their 20s. The lesions in my white matter are a little smaller then ping pong balls. Two bilaterial in my temporal lob and the thrid is deep in the middle near my Cortex and that one has been missed a lot due to its location. Is MS a strong possiblity here?
Expert:  Camille RN replied 7 years ago.
I am going to refer your question to a Neurologist, please be patient as he is not currently on line.

Thank you, ***** ***** like to get a reply from him.
Expert:  Camille RN replied 7 years ago.

I am sorry I will forward another request for you

Expert:  Ken replied 7 years ago.
Hello,
I can understand your anxiety.
Your symptoms and white matter lesions suggest that there is demyelination either due to multiple sclerosis or other causes.
I would suggest you to have a neurological check up along with few investigations like MRI Brain with contrast/ CSF analysis/ blood tests/ evoked potential test to clinch the diagnosis. Treatment will follow.
Till then take enough rest/ adequate exercise/ have balanced diet/ avoid trauma.
Please do not worry, you will be fine soon. God bless
