MRI showed SVD + WMH
I'm terrified. MRI showed white matter hyperintensities and small vessel disease.
Primary doctor said don't worry about it. "Nothing scary" in MRI, but it scares me!
Balance is getting worse, lightheadedness, falls, losing more words, dysautonomia – brain not properly controlling blood pressure and heart rate. My BP was high, now low, heart rate has been slow for years. I have AFib, too.

Will I get dementia?
Should I see a neurologist ASAP?
