    Dont google stuff, you have no clue on its location or sixe or anything. Many spots are nothing somdonr panuc. Your nuero needs to explain it and  deciede the if there is a next course of action. I can assure you if it was anything dangerous you would have been sent to a hospital. So,take a few belly breathes for now and try to keep your mind occupied until  your appointment. Hooe it all goes well.

    This happened to me 2 years ago. I had a ct scan and the dr rang me to say there were shadows on it and i had to have an mri.  I had an mri and i had 3 lesions on it and got referred to a neurologist. I was so terrified. The neurologist suspected ms and sent me for a lumbar puncture and an evoke potential test but both were negative. He just said he would see me in 12 months time to review me, which is next month. Try not to worry but i know it's hard.

    Its called white matter.. Everyone has it just some have more than others. Mine was from headaches/high blood pressure.. I was worried to hun but if it was more serious they wouldn't wait this long to get you in to the Nero doc.. Good luck you will be fine.. ❌❌❌ keep me updated
