Parry Sound MS sufferer gets good news
PARRY SOUND - After years of hoping for any sign of her condition improving, Dawn Smith can now move her fingers.
The Parry Sounder who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 1983, found out previously blocked veins had reopened, during a trip to Rhode Island for surgery.
Smith, who traveled to the United States planning to have a liberation treatment to open blocked jugular veins, constricting blood flow to the central nervous system, was told she was one of four people out of 400 patients, whose veins reopened without the treatment.
The trip was her second venture to Rhode Island, after being turned away the first time due to Cellulitis, an infection in her legs. When the doctor looked at her veins as part of a pre-surgery procedure, he was pleased to tell her it wasn't needed.
"He told me it was probably because of the baby aspirin I've been taking," said Smith Wednesday. "He was amazed."
Previously, Smith suffered from severe pressure headaches, leg spasms and couldn't move her body from the neck down.
Now, she is able to lift her shoulders up and down, her headaches have subsided, her leg spasms aren't as severe and when she's not feeling too hot, she can move her hands.
She can even manage to pull her arms back towards her body, if they are stretched outwards.
For Smith, it's a miracle she'd only ever dreamt of.

I think this is promising that some people may be able to fix their vascular problems with 'natural' solutions...
