Just today I had a call from one of their doctors and the e-mail.

Curiosity and nothing more, did your wife have a hard time getting diagnosed or have neuros questioned whether she really has MS?

The first question that came to my mind is, what tests specifically gave your wife the MS diagnosis? MS is notoriously difficult to dx with certainty (well, except for weird people like me who get an instant one ), and people are often dx'd, undx'd, redx'd, etc.
Did her doctor give her a quick and positive diagnosis or was it only after they ruled out other possibilities?
One of the things that's exciting if CCSVI pans out - and once they get the protocols pinned down - is that there might finally be ways to test for MS even before it hits someone hard.
