Did you notice any symptom improvements after the procedure?
What has improved since and by how much...
Because I was diagnosed as PPMS by neurologists at Froedtert Medical Hospital, I didn't have any expectations of improvement. I just was hoping to arrest any further deterioration in my condition.
MS symptoms before stenosis intervention: hands-numbness and tingling, loss of dexterity, insensitive to heat, muscle atrophy. Hands tighten up with use. Walking is spastic, shuffling, foot dragging, tripping on objects, legs feel like "concrete pillars", balance problems. Chronic fatigue, requiring afternoon naps. Loss of hair on head; nickel-sized circles. Tinnitus in both ears; that started about 6 weeks ago. ED.
My walking was getting so bad that I had to "pysch" myself up just to walk 50 feet. I had to be very consious of where and how I made each foot movement.
However, on the day after the procedure I was amazed at the following improvements:
*the tinnitus (in both ears) was almost completely silenced
*my sense of balance was improved
*my blood pressure dropped by 38 points
*I was able to go shopping without becoming exhausted
*the dull pain at the top of my neck, which I had for twenty years, gone completely
*mentally, the brain "fog" is gone
*the daily need for the 2:00pm nap vanished
*fatigue is gone (now if I am tired it's because I actually done some physical activity)
ETA: I forgot to mention this, as it probably sounds crazy, but the top of my head feels "cooler" (temperature) after the liberation procedure.
Improved, or probably more accurately to say, restored venous circulation and drainage from the brain?
