Time to think for my last drug recourse, LDN.
Sorry to hear that Norm. There are always new things to try. You're bound to find one that works for you.
I'm thinking now that Daflon's benefit for us is in the microcirculation (less leakage) and getting the valves to work better. The studies all point to improvement in valvular incompetence
. Valvular incompetence is what happens when the valves aren't closing properly. The CCSVI valvular issues, however, are usually truncular valvular malformations which cause the valves to be stuck closed. I doubt that Daflon can repair a malformation, but it should help functioning valves work better (opening and closing).
So far I'd say that Daflon has augmented my CCSVI benefits and my cognitive mood and function seem to be better. I think it's an important tool, along with exercise, to capitalize on the benefits of CCSVI treatment and perhaps to stave off restenosis.
Lately, I've added L-Argenine to my supplements, and the two seem to complement each other even though L-Argenine is a vasodilator. Add that to the growing pile of MS contradictions. I was concerned about the nitrous oxide part of it, given all the studies on MS patients having higher volumes of it, though there seems to produce a variant that is beneficial to endothelial health.
Anyway, L-Argenine hasn't caused any additional improvement yet in my neurological motor function, but it does (knock on wood) seem to be really helping with my neuropathic pain (which Daflon didn't). My neuropathic pain has proved to be very stubborn in the past so we'll see if it comes roaring back. In the meantime, I'm a happy camper.
So on my growing CCSVI recovery supplement list, I have Vitamin D, Fish Oil, whey protein, Daflon 500mg and L-Arginine. All these supplements and liberation surgery are pretty expensive, but far less expensive and a thousand times more effective than the so-called DMD's used to be.
