Managed to engage a discussion with Franz Schelling about Dawsons fingers and mechanical issues in MS.https://www.facebook.com/groups/msfrien ... ment_reply
Franz Schelling Nigel Wadham Hi Any increase in arterial as venous pressure within the craniovertebral space "pumps CSF" and displaces opposing tissues.
The question is: Why is this specifically injurious along the "Dawson-finger-embedded" segments of the periventricular veins
Nigel Wadham Hi Franz, I would think along the lines that Michael Flanagan suggests that the first point of resistance (eventual weakening) to refluxing flow would be where the weakest point. The entry across the BBB is important and it is where the immune system becomes active eventually, and the visual scaring is seen after the fact by MRI.
The BBB breach sends all sorts of cells all around the brain by the CSF flow.
In my thoughts the places that the 'symptom damage' occurs may not be at the site of the original breach.
The use of the episodic version of MS as a model of MS is wrong in my opinion. The progressive form of MS is a true 'disease form'.
The episodic form is the bodies breakdown under conditions such as stress, accident/physical trauma, diet, lack of exercise etc, etc.
The episodes need to be understood not guessed at by Drug Manufacturers!
I believe from reading and watching and listening to all the CCSVI discussions over the last few years that CCSVI is primarily a mechanical or physical vascular flow issue and there are many additional factors that add to create many diseases that are poorly understood because technology has not been able to explain the processes.
The talk about CSF flow and importance has come from technology showing what Michael Flanagan has published and talked about for years in the same way you have explained the vascular flow issues for years Franz.
