I hope you don't mind, but I forwarded your notes to the neuro down at the NIH that is handling my case. She thanked me for the info, and promised to give it a very thorough read.
Good luck at the Emmys. Has Jeff won any hardware before? The best I could do before MS put the kabosh on my career was win a "Platinum DVD" award for a Pearl Jam DVD that I worked on. It's hanging on the wall near my computer, kind of a bittersweet memento...
Thanks, Marc...Jeff's got 4 golden ladies, today would be 5 if he wins. It sucks that illness took away your career. I'm so sorry for that. I hate the MS strikes talented, bright young adults in their prime. You had so much more to offer in your profession. It's one of the reasons I've become radicalized (actually, someone who works with pharma told me he thought Zamboni and his team were "zealots" at the conference, before he knew who I was, and I thought...hmmm, zeal is a good thing, I'll take that as a complement.)
Hope the neuro at NIH is interested...sorry if my notes are disjointed, but my hand was flying! I came home even more convinced that venous reflux and stenosis is causative...and hope we'll get more docs interested.
