See neurologist : While matters changes on brain imaging is part of the diagnosis of MS, but can well have other causes. You did not mention any of the visual, balance, coordination symptoms that generally begin the diagnostic work up. Diagnosing from an MRI itself is it good medicine. If you have concerns on their significance, see a neurologist for an exam and correct diagnosis.

The MRI findings do not appear to meet the radiological criteria to support an MS diagnosis, and the reported outcomes would be nonspecific, requiring clinical correlation. Discuss the findings with your doctors and decide the next steps.
