"I hadn't felt my feet in over a year," she said. "Almost immediately (after the procedure) the feeling came back, and my energy came back. Now I feel like I did before I got sick. I am totally free of symptoms.

"Within five days she was on the treadmill, going at a full sprint," said Kewley. "I've lost 12 pounds since she got better just trying to keep up with her. She's pretty competitive."

Fitzgerald's time in the private Star Medica clinic in Merida, Mexico cost her $12,500, plus travel expenses.

Though she lauded the state of the art facilities and professionalism of the medical staff there, she in concerned for the thousands who lack the resources and fundraising abilities to take a similar trip.

"We need this procedure in Canada," she urged.

She's young with RR - those were two things stacked in her favor. But what if she has put MS behind her for good!

If anyone can give me a reasonable answer as to why performing angioplasty in a vein in someones neck immediately cures paresthesias (caused by lesions on the brain or spinal cord) in someones feet I will eat a helminth.

Yes Scorpion, I can explain it to you if you promise to eat a live helminth.
The problem is that your statement that a plaque (demyelination) in the brain is causing paresthesia is an assumption and you know what happen when people " assume". we all have seen people with physical improvement right after a venoplasty. In my case, 20 minutes after my procedure I was able to cross my left leg over my right leg which I was not able to do in the last several years. Since remyelination would take several weeks to happen then there must be another factor causing the neuropathy. Oxygen and glucose come to mind but could be some unknown factor.

Just one little formality. Could someone point out the "reasonable answer" part??

Is paresthesia caused by lesions in the brain and spinal cord?

Does the numbness come and go for anyone else? Worse when you are tense and better when rested? Better in the morning worse in the afternoon? Sometimes even completely gone for a bit?

From what I understand once you have a lesion it is there and only gets worse. It doesn't get better and worse during the course of a day. So why would the symptom supposedly caused by the lesion come and go like that?
