I had a MRI an EEG and a MRA to try to figure out my migraine and my phantom smells I went to the neuro today all but the MRI can back normal he said the MRI showed white spots that could be caused by the migrains?
he wants to do some blood work to check my suger level, b-12 calesteral and if they come back ok them another MRI in a year to see if the white spots are increasing just wondering if anyone else has had this?

I have had several MRIs and CT scans over the years to monitor my migraines along with an EEG to rule out seizures -- which it did.  My latest MRI did show "white matter changes" or white spots that my neurologist said are due to the migraines.  I don't know if they are common among migraine sufferers but she said they do occur.  Hope that helps!
