MRI w/wo contrast.

Quote:
Minor scattered bilateral periventricular and deep white matter T2 and FLAIR hyperintensities, without enhancement, hemorrhage, or diffusion restriction, are compatible with mild chronic small vessel ischemic disease.

Conclusion:
Nonspecific scattered white matter lesions are likely a minimal or early chronic small vessel ischemic disease. Otherwise no significant finding.
Unquote

I asked for the MRI due to constant headaches.
Braig fog etc.
Have not talked to doctor yet about the results.

Anyone - what does the above mean? Help.
What can I do?
Thanks.

Ischemia has to do with impaired blood flow. Suggest discussing ways to improve blood flow in your brain, along with anti-inflammatories for the brain.

Thanks. I have no idea of what any of this means.

From Lyme?

Perhaps from IVIG - known for causing headachdes?
Altho lately I have been infusing Gamma SubQ - lower doses.

Rocephin for Lyme brain maybe? Bicillin?

Very possibly from Lyme/coinfections...

I don't know enough about IVIG to know if that could cause this also...

But because they mentioned chronic ischemia, I'd suspect the infections.

It says you likely have mild impaired blood flow in your brain.

They don't know what caused it. There is no way for a MRI to know. But, they say that what they are seeing is consistent with a person who has mild impaired blood flow in the brain.

So, that is why you have brain fog. You don't have normal blood flow in your brain.

We know that lyme disease can impair blood flow in the brain. So, you need look no further for an explanation. This is physical proof of what lyme has done to your brain.

It can be reversed with good treatment. What you should do is get to the very best lyme doctor you possibly can.

I had 2 UBOs (unidentified bright objects) in my brain when I first found out I had lyme disease. These types of findings are common among lyme patients.

I eventually got myself to a doctor who followed the Burrascano protocol and he got me well from this horrendous disease. That was 9 years ago now, and I am still praising the Lord for it!!

Look up CCSVI.
I have been diagnosed with it
Its blockage of veins including and mainly
Issues of neck up to your brain
1/3 of blood flow needs to go up there and back and
CCSVI blocks it.

Causes all sorts of issues from heart stressing and
Limited blood flow to organs and body.
Blockages thought to be caused by biofilm colonies
Adhering to sides of veins and blocking the blood flow

I saw my test as it was being done and saw these blockages
And what they looked like. You could see clusters like cotton
Balls with moving stuff inside and you could watch the blood

Hit that spot and halt and back flow and there are also some
That were more like a band crossing the vein like a damn
It kinda was scary seeing blood not able up get through.

Just an idea that might make sense.

There are surgeries they do for the neck area esp
And though this issue can implant in other areas of body

Biofilm.

But the surgery for CCSVI doesn't hold if the infections haven't been eradicated.

No, IVIG can't cause this; it helps to prevent it! The damage probably had already happened before you started IVIG. Treatment is the ticket. TF was right.

The next test you might want to get is the SPECT scan which is the best test to measure blood flow in the brain.

Hi SusanK-

When I first got sick with lyme disease I had horrible head pressure headaches to the point that I thought my brain would explode out of my skull.

I had several brain MRI's and it showed exactly the same thing you just typed in your post.

I have been treated for lyme now 5 years and it has improved some.

I think the biofilm theory makes sense as I have been on high dose antibiotic treatment, treatment for babs, treatment for myco, and treatment for bart and still feel a clogginess/brain fog in my head.

I just added biofilm treatment rotating nattokinase, serrapeptase, and lumbrokinase.

I just wanted to reassure you that it will improve, but definitely don't neglect biofilm treatment while on antibiotics for lyme.

I wish I would have been on biofilm treatment a long time ago.
