I have had migraines for years. A couple years ago I started having some numbness in a small area of my leg. MRI with and without contrast done to head and neck. Neck clear but head shows about 7 areas of white patches. Spinal tap ruled out MS. Has anyone else had white patches on MRI?

Neurologist says they see this with chronic migraineurs. I was just curious if anyone else has received the same results. If so did repeat scans worsen. I have done research that confirms migraines can cause white patches but none say the cause.

They may not know the cause. As long as you don't have MS, like myself I am negative, try to thankful and not worry.

The cause is could be excessive oxidative stress. Try To Eliminate the oxidative stress, there is a high probability that the migraines will stop.
