I received my MRI results a few days ago and they found "several indeterminate periventricular lesions," and also a herniated disc at c5-c6. Now, what are the chances that the lesions are NOT MS? I don't see the new neurologist until the 26th. Then they will schedule the MS workup and lumbar puncture.
For a tiny bit of background, my PCP sent me to the neuro after seeing him for facial pain, believed to be trigeminal neuralgia. The MRI says "no evidence for trigeminal pathology."
I searched online to see what else the lesions could mean and it said the vast majority of periventricular leasions are due to MS. Any ideas on what ELSE could be the cause?
