MRI Scan and Lesions

I had a brain and neck MRI scan in December 2017, to see if they could find a cause as to some weird effects I was experiencing at the time.

They immediately identified demylination in my spine (in my upper neck), as well as some small "lesions" throughout my brain.

These were classic markers for MS, my neurologist finally concluded, after many and varied tests.

The small white lesions look something like this in my brain (nb. not my MRI scan):
I may have had these small brain lesions for years, she said, and not even been aware of them or their effects. My long-time slight hand tremors may have been one of those - but we'll never know!

It was absolutely fascinating seeing my own MRI brain scan results! My neurologist showed me what was happening, as she took me level-by-level through the pictures of my brain! A very surreal (yet positive) experience.
