I was wondering if you are at all concerned that your improvements could be due to your mind instead of the treatment. I ask this with the utmost humility, I don't at all wish to offend someone putting himself out there experimentally like you are. Are the improvements of a significant nature that there is no question, or do you worry that you could be feeling what you want/expect to feel?
However, I'm not sure that correcting CCSVI problems fits into the paradigm of a double blind study. For example, when a patient gets scanned, either they would have a stenosis or they don't. If you have a stenosis, then it should be fixed if possible. To not fix one, or to not inform the patient they had a stenosis, or to do a sham surgery on a person all would potentially put their health at risk.

is this a 'cure'?? - I haven't a clue. But, enjoying the improved quality of life 3 weeks post-procedure, I would not hesitate to have made the choice I did!!
