I was called today by Marta from Euromedic and thay managed to squeeze me in for an earlier checkup with dr Simka, so in half a month I will know if my blood flow is causing those problems with hand numbness or it is something else.

My nosebleed is back so I reckon low blood pressure just opens up those endothelial "tight" junctions like nothing and out pours the iron, inflammatory mediators etc etc etc. so much for pregnancy being good for MS. Pah!
One theory of mine is that perhaps the veins become more stenosed over time, and thus slowly and slightly starving the brain of oxygen, thus the symptoms start appearing.Billmeik wrote:to be honest I dont get why people see so much improvement. It almost weakens the arguement, since after liberation none of the damage is gone.
And yes I think the lesions could have some lasting 'momentum' .
The only case that sticks in my head here is an attack without restenosis. That is something Ive been waiting for and fearing and it seems to be here.
