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!
