    White spots on brain
    An_257057 posted:
    17years ago my partner had a stroke that paralyzed the right side of his body. He has had most movement come back to that side but in the last four years, he has gradually been experiencing severe pain in his hands and feet. Last year he had an MRI done which showed white spots on his brain. The neurologist read the results and could give no explanation for the white spots. Could these spots be caused by the stroke and if so why did it take 13 years after the stroke to start his hands and feet paining? Can you offer some answers as the pain is steadily getting worse with no relief in sight. He is now starting a treatment with Amnitryptilene in the hopes for some relief.look forward to your response and possibly some help.
