Good news to report!!

Postby BooBear » Wed Dec 01, 2010 12:27 pm

Ok, so you have seen my earlier post on the leg numbness I just encountered. Super-sensitive as well- made it hard to sit, stand, or lie down in a position for an period of time. It sucked!

Well, after only a few days, I am happy to report that the sensitivity has been completely abated. The numbness is really now just a cold sensation in my foot- and even that is no where near as bad as it was just a few days ago upon onset.

As many of you know, relapses often take weeks to resolve- if not months. I don't know if this was a relapse per se- but it has certainly mended quite a bit in a very short period of time.

Thankfully!!! Because it was aggravating to say the least!

Good news Boo!

I'm sure it was stressful as well, and we know that doesn't make MS symptoms any better.

Heal ... :D

How are things progressing with the doctor in your area ... any more contact beyond that email?

VERY happy for you, Boo.
Rest is super important right now - don't overdo it.

Take care.

I was told that he would get back in touch with me once his technician finishes training later in the month.

Before the bashers descend, I should clarify- he has a very qualified technician, but is sending that person to CCSVI-specific training.

Good to know ... I read on Facebook someone was liberated at Rush ... I assume your doctor is elsewhere (I don't expect you to answer) ...

Glad more and more doctors are coming on!

I don't really know how to do that ... I think if you go to the facebook page and do a "control" "F" at the same time, you could search for the word "Rush" and find it though?

It was just posted today ... maybe someone a little more savvy could help you.

I think the doctor at Rush is not yet treating openly? Newlywed4ever, I can pm it to you. ;)
