In brief: Common finding
The scan probably read as "non specific white matter changes" which is can be seen in scans of people with migraine.
This is a fairly common statement in a radiology report. The findings should be correlated with your physician's evaluation. There may be a reason to repeat the MRI in six months to a year.

If your symptoms persist they may also do your exam with a contrast injection which can change the results of your scan about 25% of the time.
