Last year in the Spring of 2010 my daughter had no MS symptoms. In fact last May she went on a cruise with her girlfriends and had a ball. She danced, swam and "partyed" hard I am sure.
In June she was stricken with MS Symptoms. They came , and for the most part there was no "attack", they came and stayed.
In July she sought physician's care and by August she had been diagnosed with MS. She had displayed 12 symptoms by then . Had brain and a spinal lesion and had a positive Lumbar puncture. In August she had MS.
In Sept she got a venogram , had CCSVI diagnosed and had 2 vessels angioplastied. The bulk of her symptoms left within a day. Some lingered and waned over the next 3 months.
Last May 2010 she could have been a healthy control.
