I don't want to change the topic but this reply is about the cheaper, "health supplement" equivalent to Daflon 500.
In 2011 I had a skin infection on my right foot that turned into a venous ulcer. It took 4 months to heal.
I 2012 I got an almost identical one on my left foot, which also has paralysis and drop-foot. It has not healed yet and has been since Oct. I am now in compression stockings for the second day.
On the right leg I had some success with the supplement. I did not have he same with my left side yet. You take the compression stockings off at night. Last night, for the first time since CCSVI treatment in 2010, I had the familiar dizziness and double-vision. I wondered if it could have to do with having much less venous blood in my legs, and therefore more available for reflux and back-jets? I'm kind of dreading tonight. Maybe the Daflon would help now?
I couldn't help but remember that if we want to track down a cause, it is necessary to know things that have a good track record of reliably causing exacerbation (hopefully only temporary) immediately. I only know of heat, and in my case, maybe venous compression on my legs.
