    I sent off for my MRI Scans on CD, just so I can place a picture of my
    brains on flickr...

    When I actually get notes as well about my MRI Scan:

    Unusual 3D effect when reading with letters jumping out of page, ?high
    visual cortex problem, for e.g. occipital AVM.
    MRI Brain, MRI Orbits - There is a 5mm high signal lesion in the
    periventricular deep white matter just lateral to the trigone of the
    right lateral ventricle.

    Two or three further very small lesions seen in the frontal deep white

    Otherwise the brain substance returns a normal signal.

    No evidence of a space occupying lesion or AVM. Normal appearance of the
    anterior visual patheways. Normal midline structures.

    The major vascular flow voids are preserved.

    Aforementioned small lesions are rather non-specific and may represent
    small areas of demyelination or ischaemia.

    The largest lesion may just affect the right optic radition.

    Any thoughts on what all that means?

    It is either by a typically ungrammatic doctor or by a schizophrenic. I
    presume the former who has difficulty formulating complete sentences
    when dictating.

    Is there much information that could be gathered from that?

    It was always concerning to me about the "demyelination" aspect,
    especially when you look that up on the internet and it says MS being
    the number one cause.

    My problem, is that I feel Im particularly hypersensitive and it
    wouldn't surprise me that my little period of vision disturbance 4 years
    ago was me being hypersensitive and being the early early early onset of it.

    But the doc tends to think it's quite normal what he's seen on the scan.

    Just reading these notes though and its long words have reminded me
    about this again.
