So I'm just curious. Is this or could this be a side affect of the CRAB drugs..?? I'm definitely going to get her tested for CCSVI but I'm a little
hesitant of getting her treated at this time. But yet, I don't want to wait
too long since she was just diagnosed with RRMS. Decisions, decisions!

I had looots of tests and I only gave positive for CCSVI. I had an angioplasty in March 2010 and I feel much better.
I have much respect for nurses and neuros. But they are not vascular doctors and not many of them have actually read about CCSVI. If you are interested in reading more about CCSVI see:
And here a video where Zamboni explains his research on CCSVI and the role of opportunisitic viruses.

Here an article that summarises all the known theories (excluding CCSVI) linked to MS:
