This is not true - first hand experience. Stress, sufficient sleep and rest vs. fatigue, weather, humidity, optimism vs. depression, hope vs. desperation, placebo (the best medicine since sliced bread), to name just a few.

This is a simplistic attempt to justify unfounded and unproven claims that there is a causal relationship between angioplasty and MS symptom relief.

None of us has a clue what the hell is going on there. This CCSVI discourse starts to resemble religion - Doctors 'answering' questions? We are ill and we have every reason to want to believe, but for the time being I would opt for the more humble term 'addressing'.

I've felt this for quite some time.

I think the doctors prefer answering specific questions and not trying to answer (or address) the ones where we just don't know yet. If you go back to the beginning of Dr. Sclafani's thread, he was covering some real basics. Types of restenosis, route that the catheter goes, the actual and the imaginary dangers of angioplasty.

thornyrose, what you've said is my understanding of SPMS too.
