Help with MRI results

I recently was given an MRI of my brain because of some dizziness/light headedness. I received the results, but my doctor was very vague and didn't give me much information. Here is what it says:

"Within deep white matter of left parietal lobe, there are few small T2 hyperintense signals perpendicular to corpus callosum. These are suspicious for multiple sclerosis plaques. Following intravenous contrast, no abnormal enhancement."

My doctor ordered the test to check for MS, even though he didn't think that's what it was. On all of the papers I brought in to take the MRI, it was checking for MS, so I believe that is why the radiologist put "Suspicious for MS."

My doctor didn't really seem concerned about it, and i'm supposed to go back in 2 months for another MRI. My dizziness is pretty much gone, now the only symptom i'm having is tiny tiny tingling spots on my back and my calf that are very brief, about once a week or so. Also, I have had muscle twitching for about a year.

I was wondering if somebody could tell me if this seemed like MS, something different, or nothing at all. I don't get migraines, and I haven't had any brain injuries, or hit my head very hard for that matter.

Side note: I don't know if this has to do with anything, but my blood calcium is pretty high, about 11.

Thank you :)
