Ischemic Changes to white matter in the Brain

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have been diagnosed as having moderate Ischemic changes to the white matter in my brain. I am 65 years old and had the MRI done after suffering what they call a Trans Global Amnesia attack.

is this common? They don't seem to give you much information apart from keep the blood pressure down. I am very active, eat extremely healthy, I  am concerned that I might get dementia. I find it really intolerable to take BP mess as well. Does anyone have some advice please.

    I understand that the prognosis of a TGA is pretty good and you should be able to carry on life as before. It must have been pretty frightening though.
