Tore,
The lesions are in the right locations for MS. Do you still get headaches?

Thx Dr. Flanagan,
I occasionally get headaches now (2-3 times per year, for 2-3 days each time) but
not as often as I used to get.

Dr F,
I wonder how many of us have 'Inflammation' that is caused by reasons other than mis-alignment, injury, genetics, diet, exercise, and so on.
It seems to me that there is allot of study going on that is showing that there is more to life than what we had previously assumed.
Your own example and my example are indicators of a bigger more complex picture, imo!

Regards,
Nigel

Tore,
You have an interesting case. From what you have told me your signs and symptoms aren't that bad yet and except for the thoracic curvature, severe displacement of the diaphragm and the pelvic obliquity your spine in fairly good condition. It would be helpful if you had lumbar x-rays to check for a curvature due to the pelvic misalignment, and better x-rays of the upper cervical spine. Since there are no upper cervical doctors in your area you could get and open mouth odontoid view. The curvature in your pelvis and the displacement of the diaphragm are putting back pressure against the vertebral veins which is transmitted to the cervical vertebral veins and the drainage system of the brain. There is a good chance you can be helped. Now is the time to try and get your condition corrected.

Nigel,
Immunological and inflammatory conditions affect many people including those with heart disease, diabetes, inflammatory bowels, arthritis, myofascitis etc. Chronic inflammation can be very destructive and the cause difficult to detect and treat because it is often subtle, such as something in the diet. I missed the source in my case. It was something I never would have suspected. The damage to the muscles occured quickly so be wary. It doesn't matter what the source is. Chronic inflammation is destructive to tissues.

dr. flanagan, when you found your source how did you finally catch it? i read a book a long time ago about allergies and ms. i think the author was dr. mandel??? i recall that say a patient came in useing a cane and the dr. put say a drop of mold or egg or whatever testing under the patients tongue the reaction in some actually put them on the floor.

I caught on after an acute flare-up following a fairly routine visit to the dentist. There were two issues going on. One was caused by a root canal I had four years earlier. The tooth was x-rayed many times and I was told nothing was wrong with it. The bigger issue, however, was caused by a new anesthetic I was given without my knowledge, informed consent or any warnings about its adverse reactions. The wicked spasms and tremors were caused by the anesthetic. Dental anesthetics are all close cousins of cocaine which is a neurotoxin. Novocain was eventually replaced because too many people lacked the plasma esterase to break it down and had adverse reactions. All the new dental anesthetics, except for one, are broken down in the liver, not the plasma. The newer one I was given is broken down in the plasma similar to Novocain. Many people lack plasma esterase. Deficiency is connected to allergic conditions such as hayfever, and autoimmune-inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, which runs in my family.

I used sublingual testing in my office. It was as good if not better than current lab tests.

dr. flanagan, if you did not have the knowledge you do and you were the reg. so called ms patient and developed those symptoms wanna bet the blame more than likely would have been put on the old stand by scapegoat MS and not even looked into further. and, many patients, not because they're stupid, but they have been brain washed and trust that their neuro " especially if he is considered an "MS specialist" knows all about everything there is to know about their condition they put the label of ms on. then the poor patient doesn't get the allergy problem-or spine-or lymes or whatever addressed and as they worsen from those problems adding to their misery--there again fits right in--this so called ms is a progressive disease and the patient thinks he is progressing because of this so called ms and that's what he can expect his neuro to tell him.--maybe it would not cure everything but when a person has different symptoms getting rid of a few would be welcomed.-

when i did chelation, took a ton of vitamins and did the diet "this dr. was a chiro. with a wellness center" they tested my blood and it was apples, dairy and eggs to stay away from. did it all for about 8 mo. then i broke my leg and it was breaking my bank and i saw no improvement so that ended. but, there is an allergy dr. not too far that is supposed to be good and if he test sublingual i might try to check him out.--although my main concern is spinal--which i'm still working on.

dr. flanagan, when i was going to dr. weimer "chiro." he was impressed with your credentials. i can't remember but one of them had to do with neurology. would you mind elaborating. i'm sure most here can pick up that you're not the average. right now i'm out of your book if all your credentials are there.-----and it's hard to match experience and common sence from the school of hard knocks. learning, doing it and seeing positive results.

as always thanks for your time and sharing your knowledge--you have a wealth of info.

Blossom,
Many of the cases of possible and probable MS can be helped by addressing the underlying mechanical causes or the trigger for the autoimmune-inflammatory reactions. The way to tell the difference is to take a thorough personal and family healthy history, and to do a good exam. It takes me several hours minimum. Most doctors spend ten to fifteen minutes.

Sublingual testing is just a tool that provides clues. It is easy to read too much into it. Some people have secondary allergies because the prime allergen sets off a reaction that increases their sensitivity to other less offensive substances. I don't see you as being and autoimmune-inflammatory case. I don't see you as a classic case of MS either. You are a probable case of MS at best with co-mobidities (conditions) related to significant musculoskeletal injuries.

I do have extensive post graduate training and certifications, including orthopedics, applied kinesiology, physiotherapy, exercsie rehabilitation, and a diplomate in chiropractic neurology. I also spent a great deal of time studying the human skull as well as comparative anatomical specimens. In addition to western clinical sciences, I have extensive background and certification in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, including martial arts forms used for healing such as katas, Tai Chi and Chi Kung. That's just the short list. That said, chiropractic education and training in general need serious improvement, such as internships in hospitals and with medical doctors who are experts in their fields. Basically, I didn't let my education get in my way. I blazed my own trail.

Thanks Dania.

Chiari malformations is one of my favorite topics. The Dandy-Walker Complex-Continuum is another. Dandy-Walker Syndromes are the complete opposite of Chiari malformations. Instead of descending into the foramen magnum, the cerebellum get pushed up in the posterior fossa and into the tentorium cerebelli that covers it. I cover them both in my book and my next blog will cover them also which should be ready some time today. I suspect a similar situation occurs in a variant form of Parkinson's associated with dysautonomia.

The link below is to my latest post on poroelasticity, ventriculomegaly and mega cisterns, and the role they play in many of the signs and symptoms seen in AD, PD and MS. Enlarged ventricles and cisterns are signs of faulty CSF flow and cranial hydrodynamics.
