Nonspecific, non diagnostic MRI, which may correlate with migraine, prior head trauma. Tremors could be due to thyroid or heredofamilial issues. We cannot provide therapeutic advice here, but your doctor, who knows you, should now discuss the appropriate next steps.

Your MRI is nonspecific, and non-diagnostic, and the report findings might be associated with prior head trauma, cigarette smoking, migraine, ?microvascular angiopathy, demyelinating disorder, and congenital issues, perhaps. It does not provide definitive answers as to why you have symptoms. See a neurologist and get additional opinion regarding this.
