Hi, I'm 38 European male. I had 3 TIA's 15 months ago, and the original diagnosis was MM on the right side. I had angiogram soon after the day I had the TIA's which manifested the typical collateral network around the middle artery. I had a control few months back (but only on the right side!) that indicated no further changes. I've gone through a lot of scientific literature on the subject. My neurologists are not too sure if I should be classified as a MM patient, or if it is just an aftermath of a more typical blockage. It could be a very slow process with origin way back in my life. It could even be congenital. I have been thinking of consulting a neurologist (on my angiograms) in US to get a better peace of mind.
I sometimes experience mild numbness on my left arm and foot. I'm excercising quite a bit, working and living 95% normally. I'm permanently on aspirin, next control is on April.
I don't know if this helped you or your son, but maybe there are more adult patients who could share their experience.
