Can you,please, have a look to the xrays I have sent by e.mail?...


Hello MTF,
I have reviewed the x-rays you sent. Unfortunately the images are very poor quality. In the lateral view of the cervcial spine most of the spinous processes and the vertebral bodies are missing due to overexposure. The third image you sent looks like it is supposed to be an open mouth odontoid but it is difficult to determine. There are also no markers to indicate the left or right sides of the film. If I assume that the images are presented anterior to posterior then you appear to have a curvature in the thoracic spine to the left side. You also have degeneration of the joints in the lower cervical and upper thoracic segments.

Thanks Dr. Flaganan

I did scans of the xrays to send it to you by mail.
Should I do others? What can I do?

I've been thinking that the Placebo effect and Fight or flee fits in this paradym. Intracellular infection is the most probable likelihood of feeling ok when things are not. Drugs, spinal alignments, vascular improvements because of PTA cannot make this difference in a 'moment'! Hope does!

Edit;
The processes of Intracellular life affecting the nervous system make logical sense. The changeability of symptoms due to the 'disease's cellular life inside the host cells' is in my mind a way that the fluctuation of symptoms occurs.
The disease cells live at a different pace of life and are protected by the host cell membrane, so they are independent and not effected in the same way or time frame that the host cell is.

Hello MTF,
I wouldn't scan any other images at this point. It won't help unless we can find a doctor to work on your spine.

Keep me posted. Find out where he went to school and what year he graduated. What methods does he use? Does he use any physiotherapy equipment?

‎"It is suggested that where spinal MS has been diagnosed from clinical observations, patients should be referred for angiological investigation to search for dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) within the head to identify any treatable subjects."

Raised venous pressure as a factor in multiple sclerosis

I like the thought processing here, the difference for me is that the breach of BBB may be allowing CPn or Lyme or another antagonist across the BBB, that needs to be defined!

Hi Dr. Flanagan,

FYI - Effective 7/31/12, Dr. Craig Wehrenberg (Albany, NY) retired from his AO practice, the lucky guy. Thank you again for recommending him two years ago. Ordinarily, I'd be upset with the loss of a great doctor, but since his wife, Dr. Tracy Wehrenberg, AO, has taken over his practice, I have no worries. :)

Hello Poet,
Thanks for the update and your welcome. He is indeed lucky to be able to retire from health care. I wish him all the best.

From Mike Arata
Over the last month we have preformed ANS testing before and after CCSVI treatment. Review of 24 cases reveals improvement in 2/3 of patients. That's objective evidence of a response to treatment.

Dysautonomia (Autonomic Dysfunction)
Dis-auto-nome-e-ia
Dysautonomia (or autonomic dysfunction) is a broad term that describes any disease or malfunction of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). (see definition of ANS under "Files")
The autonomic nervous system controls a number of functions in the body, such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestive tract peristalsis, sweating, amongst others. Dysfunction of the ANS can involve any of these functions.
The symptoms of dysautonomia are numerous and vary widely from person to person. Since dysautonomia is a full-body condition, a large number of symptoms may be present that can greatly alter a person's quality of life. Each patient with dysautonomia is different—some are affected only mildly, while others are left completely bed-ridden and disabled.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dysautonomia
Dysautonomia literally means dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system is the master regulator of organ function throughout the body.
http://www.dinet.org/
 
In laymen's terms... The functions of your body, that happen "automatically", are not working properly.

Hi Dr. Flaganan,


I went to see Dr. Robert last week. He did like the x.rays and said that my atlas isn´t in proper position. He used a impulse kind of pistol to put it place (no benefits till now). I was laying down in quiropratic table with my left side up. I'll go back there next week.

Thanks MTF. The device is probably an "Arthrostim."

More on arteriovenous fistulae via Alison Fisher: "The venous system of the spinal cord is important for several reasons. First and foremost, venous drainage is an important determinant of blood flow. Compromise of venous flow may result in delayed ischemia of the spinal cord. Second, enlarged veins are the primary manifestation of arteriovenous malformations where an artery is abnormally connected to a vein. When this happens the veins become enlarged and tortuous with a corkscrew pattern. The veins may become so massive that they cause spinal cord compression. More important, the arteriovenous malformation steals blood from the spinal cord, making it ischemic."
"The anatomy of the spinal arterial and venous systems explain many of the symptoms and causes of spinal cord ischemia, a condition that affects thousands of people world wide. For example, one of the most important causes of spinal cord ischemia is occlusion of the aorta, the primary source of blood flow to the thoracic and lumbar spinal cord. A recent study suggests that the lumbosacral spinal cord is sensitive to prolonged periods of very low blood pressure. The anterior spinal artery, a thin and tortuous artery, supplies over 50% of the blood flow to the lower cervical and thoracic spinal cord; this artery is vulnerable to occlusion and inflammation."

CPn could make the veins problematic/enlarged

Thoughts?
