Brain MRI findings. Tiny nonspecific periventricular and subcortical white matter. Possiblities mini strokes, vasculaties, ms. I shuffle my feet & drop?
Nonspecific finding: White matter changes that are nonspecific are sometimes over reported or under-reported on MRI studies.

So you shuffle your feet and drop? What do you mean by drop? Do you have numbness? Why was the brain MRI done? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Experiences: First, am not enamored with Tecfidera, as over 20% of my patients have found it intolerable due to GI adverse events, and many have found it to be ineffectual. Can cause drops in lymphocytes and also affect other white cells, and your eosinophil elevation could very well represent a low level allergic response which may depart in a few weeks. Clarify the issues with your neurologist. ...Read more
