That: finding can be seen with migraines. It is non-specific, however, and other entities could cause it.

Your description of frontal lobe white matter lesions is an unusual location for migraine which typically is posterior. Would more commonly see frontal changes after head injury. However, get advice from your doctor who knows you best.
