Hello, Thank you in advance for...
Hello,
Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.
I, 27 yo caucasian female, have been presenting MS symptoms (sudden blurred/fuzzy vision, headaches, head fog, tingling in extremities, burning in finger tips, on and off mild fever, sore throat, ringing in ears, etc).
I had an mri with and without contrast done of my brain. The only finding was as follows:
Single punctate focus of T2 Flair hyperintensity in the right centrum semiovale, above the corpus callosum, entirely nonspecific.
Dr said this rules out MS. I would appreciate knowing what it does indicate (if anything), please.
Thank you again.
Other information is that I have a slightly high RDW, if that means anything.
