This is my first time doing this and I feel awkward. I don't know if this is the right place but anyone know anything about periventricular small vessel white matter disease? I have just been diagnosed with it. Please be patient with me I also suffer with mild cognitive impairment . cry

Hi whamm0, Welcome to our forum. I'm sorry no one has replied yet. I have not ever heard of this but am guessing it's in the brain? Is your cognitive impairment due to this?

Yes it is one of the things that accompanies the diagnosis. As the disease progress es it is also known to cause vascular dementia. Docs downplay say I just have to get my BP under control but when white matter lesions are already present I've never heard of them not growing or spreading
