Trying say WAITING! Oh and before my Dr explained I had 'black holes' they call them which is permanent damaged areas on the brain from the MS lesions

They are the same. They are all called UBO's or unidentified bright objects. You can have an area of hyper intensity without physical symptoms, as some are in an area that doesn't really affect you physically. Usually in the gray matter if the brain.
