If someone can, please explain to me how an "event", which supposedly triggers MS, is anyway related to the theory of CCSVI. If CCSVI is based on the notion of iron deposition and the immune system "cleaning it up", how is a hurt leg, viral infection, etc. a trigger? Please clarify.
Not all neuro symptoms must be 'MS." I believe my neuro symptoms are caused by a combination of CCSVI and CCVBP (Chronic Craniocervical Venus Back Pressure).
EJC, your wife's fall down that flight of stairs might have hurt her neck and given her CCVBP, even if she never complained of pain. If you haven't already, you might want to read this thread started by Dr. Flanagan, uprightdoc: CCSVI and CCVBP
A quick summary of CCVBP is that, for many possible reasons/causes, the foramen magnum (opening of the bottom of the skull) does not sit properly on the first vertebra, the Atlas, thereby causing nerves, veins, and/or arteries to become pinched which can cause all sorts of problems.
My personal CCVBP story is that many downhill slalom skiing wipe-outs caused my head to become tilted in two directions! Upper Cervical chiropractic Atlas Orthogonal treatments (one of several methods) made 95%-100% of the numbness in my feet disappear so I could walk again and took away 75% of my "shark bite" torso pain so I could get out of bed again.
I still do have other neuro symptoms, but at least now, I can get out of bed and walk around with my head on straight.
