always thought my first significant episode was started by a mushroom trip.
Now thats funny
I could never figure out any possible connection when I was looking purely from the auto-immune angle, but now it makes more sense - psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) is a vasoconstrictor.
Hmmm, and now that I think about it, with my allergies as a kid I was on a ton of various antihistamines, many of which are also vasoconstrictors.
And oh, crap - so is cannabis ... which is why both pot and psilocybin are used to treat migranes and cluster headaches ...
I'm definitely going to pay attention to what vasoconstrictors I come into contact with, an minimize their combination where I can't or won't rule them out entirely.
PS - there simply HAS to be a way to modify the song/rhyme to work for CCVI - "the brain that drains flows mainly in the veins" or "the veins that drain must flow freely from the brain" ... somehow it's gotta work, it comes to mind everytime I find myself typing about the veins that drain the brain lol

For all the smokers out there.

That's not good for me to hear. Maybe this is why it helps with somethings, but conversely makes my legs weak. I think I'll try and go cold turkey until Stanford and see how I feel. I can't take it with me on the plane anyway and this might be a good experiement.

I know a lot remains to be proven but is there reason to think that vascular stenosis contributes to high blood pressure in people with MS?
