Cold hands and feet, inverted sleeping helps(allowing blood to drain from the head easier), excersise has helped many people (gets blood flowing). I am interested in CCSVI and have been looking to get it done somewhere but don't know where. I have read many good posts about it and I have a read many negative posts too. I might hold off a while to see if they can get some new procedures to reduce unwanted side effects.

Because the blood has to travel across to the other side to get out is doing more damage than before. i was cutting the grass is Sept and now can hardly walk. I have now been diagnosed with primary progressive. I take no drugs at all and have had M.S for 20 yearsI was liberated @ a clinic in Albany. The immediate results were outstanding! Two weeks later, my symptoms began progressing again, right hand and foot got very cold and i no longer had much balance - back to walker for me! I'm living in Quebec on disability, have no savings and was told the treatment would not be repeated at that clinic. Zero follow up, and now I am at a complete loss. What can I do?!

Awesome friggin' view. Please attach a bigger version some time that I can make out better.
I was only in California once about 35 years ago. My sister in law lived in Petaluma let me use her Datsun B-210 to go to San Francisco. I filled it with gas and parked it and when I came back to the car the darned hill was so steep that I had a river of gasoline going down the road. Pretty area, but I like my nice flat Michigan!
