A member of our page attended the Erase MS open forum and reported back.
Clay Walker was a guest panelist at the Erase MS open forum held in southern California this weekend. The lead speakers were neurologists Dr. Stephen Hauser (editor of the Annals of Neurology) and Dr. Howard Weiner. The neuros hoped to nip CCSVI discussion in the bud by opening their statements and saying it was all placebo and there is nothing to note in CCSVI research.
Renowned country music singer and recording artist, Clay Walker, spoke about his recent testing for venous obstruction and his own jugular vein malformations, much to the chagrin of the neurologists. He asked Dr. Hauser if he intended to test for venous malformations, since many pwMS are showing these same problems...Dr. Hauser said no.
As more and more pwMS come forward with questions about their own vascular problems, there is more interest in the diagnosis and treatment of CCSVI.
