I was recently told I had two white spots show up on an MRI in my brain stem. Are we talking MS or mini strokes? My neuro said we would discuss it further at my next appt. I'm petrified to what "white spots" may mean.
Are there any other things these "white spots" could mean?
I would really appreciatte anyone's input or experience with this.
Thanks!

My best friend has MS and that's what this sounds like. I wish you luck. There are MANY new meds out there though so don't be discouraged.

What triggered the MRI, may I ask?

I've had right side pain, weekness and muscle spasms for about 7 yrs. First I was diagnosed with TMJ (treatment did not help). Next I had ACDF, neck surgery, (it did not help).
Now I am experiencing more pain and it is moving to the left side.
I went to a new neuro and he ordered a brain MRI (first one I ever had!)
I think I have a good doctor this time but worried about the findings.
Thanks for your help.

Just so you know, my friend was diagnosed with TMJ several years prior to being diagosed with MS. She has known she's had MS for 11 years now, is 34 years old and has a healthy 7 year old daughter and is expecting her second.
