Sandra Sully says MRI scan found white spots on her brain

Sandra Sully has revealed she suffered from a terrifying health scare last year. 

Doctors found white spots on the long time Channel Ten news presenter’s brain following an MRI scan.

Speaking to Australians Women’s Weekly, the 52-year-old journalist said it all began when she had trouble reading her autocue lines and became uneasy on her feet.

After waking up one day feeling uneasy, she almost collapsed.

I’d lost my balance. I had to hold the wall,’ she explained.

However, despite her left arm going dead and a niggling pressure point in her head, she soldiered on and attended the Logies. 

‘The next day I just knew I wasn’t right. It took me forever to mouth a sentence and I just didn’t feel sharp,’ she admitted.

As an ambassador for the Stroke Foundation, Sandra knew she had to listen to her body and seek medical attention sooner-than-later. 

‘I thought I was having a mini-stroke,’ she said.

The media personality said the MRI revealed white spots on her brain and she was suffering migraines without a headache.

Sandra has since told Daily Mail Australia that while ‘some days are better than others’ she is feeling a lot better and is regularly monitoring her health and checking in with her GP.  

She said doctors gave her the ‘thumbs up’  and were ‘really excited about 2018 and being back at the News desk.’
