ps..his lumbar puncture showed no active virus.
EBV is a very common virus worldwide, and studies show that up to 95% of the U.S. population has been infected with EBV at some point in their lives. EBV infection, especially if it occurs early in childhood, does not always cause illness, or it may cause a very mild illness that is not distinguishable from colds or other mild illnesses of childhood. However, when infection first occurs during the teen years or in young adulthood, infectious mononucleosis will develop in up to 50% of cases.

I am open to any logical ideas. To me CCSVI is so logical I can't help but think could all of the crap I have been through in the last ten years been resolved this easily. Where the heck have the gazillions of dollars gone for research?
It is time for researchers to think outside of the box.
I also wonder if I did have EBV, could the swollen lymph nodes contribute to the vein problem....? I have never, to my knowledge, been tested for EBV.
I can't answer that, but what he has said is that the logical question to ask it whether inflammation causes these stenoses and that having been treated with these drugs makes no difference to the size or significance of these things.did zamboni find that people on anti-inflammatory drugs continued to develop new stenoses? at the same rate as pre-treatment?
and that Dr. Dake needs some serious cash if he wants to keep this research going, and we're both stymied as to how to get it. I'm trying my hardest to find some donors and get more doctors on board.
