I personally have said numerous times, once in the last week, that I have hope for the future of CCSVI and that I'd be a fool not to since my wife has MS. I don't know how you even came up with that.
Other symptoms disappeared or, at least, diminished. As a result, Taylor has stopped several medications designed to combat fatigue and muscle spasms and reduced the dose of others.
