Hello, I would like to know if anyone has ever experienced something that is happening to me.
Due to MS, I guess, I have lost a some sensitivity in the left side of my hip, although not to the point of being numb.
But during the night, if I sleep in the fetal position (that is, on one of the sides) I notice, when I wake up, that the left side of my body is numb. This feeling dissapear quickly if I change from the fetal position to looking to the ceiling (on my back). If when I wake up, my position is the looking-to-the-ceiling one, then it doesn't feel numb.
When I was diagnosed MS, I had myself analysed for CCSVI following the Haacke CCSVI protocol, but the doctors said everything was OK in my veins.
But I recently read something in internet about how different positions of the body (supine, upright) could affect the flow of the CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) and may affect in the symptoms and evolution of MS.
When I was screened for CCSVI (MRI) I was scanned only in the looking-to-the-ceiling position. In which positions were you screened for CCSVI?
(They also studied my neck while I was sitting on a chair with a device that is like the one used for screening pregnant women).
Lately, I'm trying to sleep in the looking-to-the-ceiling position, but it is difficult because when I get asleep I change to the fetal position, and it is also not very comfortable. And I have not noticed any improvement since I'm trying to modify my sleeping position.
(Sorry for my scant vocabulary of english)
