i have not treated any siblings at this point. I am working up a mother daughter pair and have treated the mother. I doubt that they will have mirror image findings because they are so different in age. Their clinical presentations are also different.
but we will see.
I'm still looking to have my daughter's veins looked at. Haven't discussed in some time, so to refresh, she has been going through a dx process and to date still undx. Her symptoms are very similar to MS, yet spine & brain MRI do not warrant an MS dx. She is following the trail her docs are leading her on, and the latest is a gastro doc that doesn't think she has anything wrong, that it is in her head. Sound familiar MSers? She is only 21. I don't know what my brain scans would have looked like back at that age, but I can trace my symptoms back to about 20. Knowing what we do about CCSVI, I wonder if this is the early signs of CCSVI on her cerebral vascular system. But, because she is not already dx with MS, nobody will even do a doppler. This has been undx since she was 14, with worsening at about age 20 to bring us back to the doctors. As a mother, I want to avoid her ever getting MS. I realize we are at the early stages of CCSVI understanding. At what point will anyone look at veins of a patient like my daughter? Time is brain after all...
