As far as I know, I'm the first person who has had the liberation treatment and who does not have MS.
I've got Transverse Myelitis (TM), a demyelination of the spinal cord only (not the brain).
TM left me with severe tonic spasms (among many other symptoms). All sort of movement will trigger spasms (moving a finger, hand, leg so on). I tried quite a few meds and doses but none with success.
I heard of the success of the CCSVI treatment and wanted to be tested.
I had two bad stenoses. 100% in azygous and more than 90% in left internal jugular vein. I had a balloon angioplasty three months ago.
My spasms did not change right after the angioplasty. Nothing. However, I had other bizarre changes like my daily migraines stopped and my breathing improved quite a lot. But the spasms, the thing I wanted to get rid of did not change for about a month.
In that period, I emailed a few docs experts in CCSVI about my case. I was told that although the majority of people experience changes, a few don't and there is no clear correlation as why this is the case.
I was told that some patients have changes right away, others about three months after, but the majority report changes by the sixth month.
People with CCSVI are born with the conditon, so the vascular system adjusts at a different speeds if CCSVI is corrected.
My spams started to slightly change a month after the angioplasty and they have almost gone away three months after.
If I had written my progress here a week after the angioplasty I would have said that CCSVI did not work for me.
As you know there is the possibility of having restenosis in the internal jugular veins. One needs to be monitored on a regular basis. Stenosis does not happen right away (a day after the angioplasty).
I had a doppler ultrasound a month after the angioplasty (that was normal) and I will have a selected venography in three months time.
It is very important to know whether and why certain people do not improve after the angioplasty. But this info needs to be taken within a time context.
