David1949 wrote:At least one study shows CCSVI to be more common among more advanced cases of MS and less common among early cases. That doesn't fit with the theory that CCSVI is congenital. Also if we are born with these defects then why does MS not manifest itself until we are in our thirties? (or 44 in my case?) I remain open to the idea that CCSVI is not congenital or at least not entirely congenital.
