I think in many ways we are here for support, emotionally and intellectually. Four years ago, when I was first diagnosed, this is the place where I found the best information, which was what I needed to work through the emotions. So for some of us, playing with the complexities is helpful and enjoyable. (I try to put "I think" and "the theory is" and "maybe" qualifiers on pretty much every post I write!) I spent four years with "autoimmune MS" to which none of the explanations really clicked and none of the many facts (LDN helps, smoking hurts, copaxone works by mysterious ways, that island that had an MS epidemic, etc) fit together to form a picture unless we are talking a Pollock. And now...it all keeps fitting.
All of CCSVI is an unproven theory, when you think about it, and we're still talking about that.
