MS patient ‘punished’ after controversial treatment

Postby erinc14 » Thu Mar 28, 2013 9:22 am

A Dartmouth woman with multiple sclerosis claims she is being denied a check-up with a vein specialist in Nova Scotia after undergoing a controversial treatment in Europe.

The health minister says it shouldn't be a problem for her to see someone, but Karen Clarke said she feels punished by the medical community.

These days the 59-year-old says she has renewed energy, one of the benefits — she credits — of a controversial treatment for MS.

“The numbness is gone out of my feet…I died and went to heaven. It's just fantastic,” she said

She wanted a follow-up ultrasound to see if her veins were still open a year and a half after the procedure. She was denied and told to see a neurologist. An access to care failure.
