With that in mind, out of curiousity, were you referring to immune suppressants being used as long term suppressants or rebooting agents, or both?

There is no mention of immune suppression or the immune system in relation to CCSVI research that I've seen....only that is doesn't seem to make a difference. Every MS patient tested has CCSVI. Even those who have had revimmune, tysabri, copaxone, (don't know about campath) etc. They still have reflux, stenosis, iron deposition, and hypoxia in the brain.

Radeck, you are not alone. This is how MS presents for many (not all, but mainly RRMS)...a dramatic flare of new neurological and motor deficits, seemingly overnight. My Jeff spent a week at high altitude and came home with numbness, tingling, bladder problems, fatigue, difficulty walking. In retrospect, we believe he had an hypoxic event (almost like a stroke) that pushed his CSSVI over the edge. Some people get a virus or bacterial infection, some give birth, some have a stressful time or physical accident as the precipitating events leading to their first MS flare. These events create endothelial disruption, increase hypoxia, strain the CNS and worsen CCSVI.
