venous insufficiency...

Postby PCakes » Sat Jul 03, 2010 11:28 pm

doing a bit of surfing...

What are the symptoms of venous insufficiency?
Symptoms of venous insufficiency include:

•Edema (swelling)
•Skin discoloration
•Prominent varicose veins or ropy veins
•Skin ulcers
•Aching, burning, or throbbing sensations in the legs and feet
•Cramping
•Leg weakness


.. from the beginning i believed that CCSVI, the VI part - venous insuffiency, would with research be revealed as systemic.. I still believe this. Look at the symptoms above..the last 3, at least, are very common in MS..yes? and why would these venous issues be unique to the cerebro-spinal area? in some cases maybe but, if CCSVI is congenital, (excluding environmental & trauma as the cause) if the venous system is malformed in vitro it seems likely, to me, that the entire venous system would/could be involved..
Without MS, you go to your doctor and complain of the symptoms above.. you will likely be sent for imaging of some sort and/or a vascular specialist .. with MS.. sorry "it must be the MS". Familiar words?

It's taken us a lifetime to get into this MeSs but i do believe that we are in good hands now.

Before I Had the Liberation procedure my foot was so swollen that I could not put a shoe on it. 6 hours after the procedure the swelling had totally disappeared and my foot was back to normal.

this article, couple weeks old now, touches on this very subject.. Dr. Brandes is a solid advocate of CCSVI..
