My wife did and I've heard stories from others who say the same) ...

Over the years, on several occasions, all of a sudden I could walk perfectly -- for 1-5 minutes. It was too rapid to even fall under the category of relapsing/remitting.

when pressure is applied to the cartoid vein in your neck .... you WILL lose consciousness . You WILL however .... continue to breathe , as your airway has not been blocked .
The restriction in bloodflow ...... causes this.
upon releasing the pressure on the neck's cartoid ..... the person resumes his/her consciousness.
this clearly demonstrates the importance of blood flow INTO the brain.
to suggest that restricted bloodflow OUT of the brain plays no role in the health and function of the brain .........

IT started with foot drop in his left leg and now he has to lift his hip to swing his leg and he also has very limited function in his left hand (that didn't stop him from putting up a garage door opener with the help of a bungy cord - I call him MacGiver sometimes).
His lesions are small and spread throughout. Wouldn't there be a predominance of lesions on one side or the other if the demyelination is causing his symptoms? His right side is completely normal.
I find it frustrating that neurologists don't seem academically interested in this sort of thing. The one time I asked about this, I was told something along the line of "MS is a mysterious disease".
