I have no idea but if it's available in the UK, I shall give it a go and report back!!!

Ahhh, it's Nurofen (ibuprofen). No, never sorts my symptoms out.

"Advil Cold and Sinus" is an over-the-counter decongestant, right? I suspect that mucus plays a part in MS; so many of us report sinus drainage, sinusitis, sinus allergies, etc. It would seem logical to me that anything that reduces mucus might improve MS symptoms.

This is really interesting! Mucus is definitely an issue with me. My MS diagnosis is rather new (January 2010) and more or less since then I have mucus problems, especially in the morning hours.

Any idea how this might link to CCSVI?

Gordon this is a guess.
It could act as a blood thinner, making the drainage from the brain easier allowing the blood to flow better and eliminating some of the iron?
Again just a guess.
