    I asked him about this yesterday and he said there are some peoples brains that may look terrible and they function fine.

    Then there are others who brains look normal and they don't function hardly at all.

    He said they really can't explain it and would be lying to me otherwise.

    He has a great reputation and has been doing this for over 30 years. He said the medical society just can't really figure out the correlation of the brain and auto immune disorders.

    They don't know what triggers some people to get one disease and others to have many. Even as much as they do know, there is so much more that they don't.

    I just wanted to put this out there for those that have brain scans and had these white areas in your scans.

    Always question but don't put too much worry into it unless you have having huge problems. Carla
