Ive had CCSVI treatment in Bulgaria on May 5th of this year. I have gotten much worse in the following months. You couldnt prove this theory by me at this point. That is for sure.
In this context the hypothesis raised in the article is as valid as any.
One of the problems with the theory that multiple sclerosis is connected to blocked veins is that narrowed veins in the brain can cause strokes. But the part of the brain affected by strokes is not the same part affected by MS, Spence said.
In addition, many MS lesions are found in the spinal cord, not in the brain, so the narrowing of veins in the brain is not going to cause those lesions, he said.
We don't know what we don't know, but I believe that fixing our blood flow can't be a bad thing. I also believe the association between MS and stenosis in Veins is too strong to be ignored. We are still in the early stages of this paradigm. The true paradigm shift will occur as more patients (early adopters) are treated and results are recorded and shared.

Whether this inflammation is caused by a virus, bacteria, immune system that has gone array, a blood brain barrier pathology or by blood reflux and iron deposition so far remains a conundrum.
