I was a football player ten years ago and had 4 concussions.

Customer Question
I was a football...

I was a football player ten years ago and had 4 concussions. At that time the doctor told me to stop playing and said that I could be suffering of dementia later in life. I just had an MRI and the result is shows that I have a few scattered punctate foci of FLAIR hyperintensity in bifrontal subcortical white matter non specific and could be sequelae of previous inflammation or vasculopathy. I have my doctors appointment in a month; I am worried and anxious. Is this a sign of CTE,or early dementia, MS etc, Please help me out

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

I feel fine.. Migraines once in a while, some problem sleeping

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had depression and lack of concentration
