I am curious about this. I have had migraines and daily headaches since 1987,back then I had a CaT scan.(normal)I have had mutiple Drs. and ,medication.No preventive meds. work,so I just use abortives. Fast forward to 2003 when I had another MRI(neck/head). Drs. said everythign was normal,but when I decided to get my medical records and read them myself....it said I had 4-5 brain lesions.But it is normal for a migraineuer to have brain lesions. I had more than the normal amount for a (migraine)person my age.
I asked my Dr. and also the neurologist about what this meant. NOONE knew. Will I get more lesions as I get older? Will my brain fail more than it already is?(I also have fibromyalgia and am in a fog a lot)
I really woudl like to know if there is something I can do for my brain. Did I only get the lesions BEFORE I actually found a medication that worked pretty good?

Hi nativir2, first of all take comfort in the fact that your Doc & Neuro was not overly alarmed at this, I'm sure that someone who knows about this will come along and speak to you soon, so no need to run off to any other site & miss out on good advice. I don't think anyone can tell us what is going to happen or what we are going to get when we are older, would we really want to know that, hmmmmm don't think I would. You could spend years worring about it & then get hit by a big red bus, so worring about this would be a waste of time. Worry= anxiety= can cause health problems with physical symptoms. Anyway, I'm sure you will get good advice here very soon, just hold on & don't go away to another site. Best wishes :) Oooh it would be a good idea to list meds you have or are taking now, along with your age & of-course whether you are male/female and any other health probs you may have had, it may well help. Good luck
