Vascular MS Hypothesis and Treatment Questioned by studies

Postby cinder21 » Tue Aug 03, 2010 6:20 am

Has anyone seen this?
I stumbled upon it while going through the science daily website. Both studies seem to suggest no correlation b/n MS and CCSVI

Yes, it's pretty much the same article as is being discussed here (and has been the subject of a few threads in the past).

The Wall Street journal reprinted the news since the discussion in Canada about funding is just around the corner perhaps?

About your signature - I think it's a good time to be tested, so soon after initial symptoms. Have you investigated IRs in the Caribbean?

Sorry bout the signature. I haven't upddated it. I actually don't have MS. I thought I did and now I don't. Thanks

Well to be honest I have not been diagnosed as yet but I'm missing upper motor neuron signs such as spacity, balance issues, barbinsky sign etc. for this to be MS. I probably have some form of neuropathy that only seems to affect my motor nerves. I will be investigating shortly but for now i'm convinced it ain't MS or anything that involves upper motor neurons. I also did an MRI which was clear. I know an MRI isn't anywhere near conclusive but it helps. In the past I was so convinced I had MS I was even able to get an appointment with DR.Simka during the earlier days of CCSVI.
