I'd love to print this out and read later since in is so long, but the stenoses is at least one thing noted. We're they going to do a follow up visit for you?
Not to sound all doctorish, but it goes without saying that our typical suspects are involved, underneath collarbone, and upper cervical (neck). Plus on page 7 it says the azygos vein is pinched.
Also, if you look at page 14 it says, " The right and left IJV have positive volume flow rate while they also have negative volume flow rate. This indicates a circulatory flow pattern where there is bi-directional flow within the vessel at the same time."
Wow, if that doesn't sound like reflux, I don't know what does.
Do you have any date/location for treatment?

One thought was that when the immune system attacks, it cleans out the iron. So someone with a less aggressive immune system would have fewer lesions but more iron.
