Hello! This is my first post...but been a long time reader.
Jan 5-2011 I had CCSVI procedure done by Dr. Arata down at Pacific Interventionalists which was a big success!!!! My years of leg spacitcy and pain has gone completely, my fatigue has gone, my tremors...gone. The only thing I would say has stuck around is the tingling in my feet and calfs. Which I have heard/read that seems to be common.
My question to anyone who can help me....I have had the valves removed and was told by Dr. Arata not to have my head bent down for long. Now, 2 months post procedure, the other day I was washing my hair at the side of the tub and had my head bent down under the tub for a couple minutes. When I stood up, my eyes felt pressure and fullness and had a pain behind them, much like pre-procedure. It has been about 5 days since I did that, and my head still feels "funny" and full and like I have been standing on my head. I also feel tired and just foggy. Each day does seem to get a little better.
But I am very curious if anyone else has experienced that? For those out there that have had their valves removed, what are your experiences with bending over. If any??
Also like I mentioned it has been just over 2 months and my neck/shoulders still seem to act up and cause aches once and awhile. Especially between the shoulders closer to my neck. Do any of you find that the case?
Thank you for any input as these are questions I can't seem to google to find an answer!
Hi Jenny, I hope this is only a temporary thing. When I talked to dr Sinan, he told me that breathing does not let any reflux happen even if your valves are open. Allegedly, 15% of the people have no valves. Dr Arata is using his technique.
