Question: MRI Results

 julie - Thu Apr 19, 2007 6:16 pm

I'm a 40 yr old female..I've recently had a mri because of problems with short term memory, speech problems, word problems, constant headache, dizziness, nausea, moodiness, forgeting things or where i put things. Can't always remember conversations or I forget what we were talking about etc.
I've had an mri and will be going to the neuroligist but I'm curious since my regular doctor won't tell me anything what exactly my results mean..can you help ? could this possibly be early alzheimers ? this is how the MRI reads

mild paranasal sinus mucosal thickening and partial opacification of the mastoid air cells.
mild burden of foci of abnormal signal in the supratentorial subcortical white matter is nonspecific. The differential diagnosis includes migraines and other causes of microvascular disease. This would be an atypical imaging manifestation of demyelinating disease....
