Rather than write down how I am travelling one week after the procedure I have used my normal medium of Youtube. Please see brief update:http://www.facebook.com/pages/CCSVI-AUS ... 799?ref=ts
Am loving seeing so many joining the discussion.
Hey Kerri, very interesting!! fatigue, voice and appearance of your face seem to be the first noticeable changes to both you and your loved ones.
The color vision improvement (your increased perception of green) is of significance because there have been studies which correlate colour disturbances with MS. I for one am red-green challenged with up 65% of PwMS affected.*
How many of us have color vision issues?
Have you had optic neuritis attacks before and has your neuro conducted tests confirming some level of deficit in color perception?
where the summary states "Colour deficits were found in 45% of patients tested with the Ishihara plates and 42.5% of patients tested with the FM 100-Hue test. 65% of M.S. patients failed at least one of the tests."
Very interesting indeed. I had first bout of ON last December (although have had periods of eye weirdness before). I did do the red/green vision charts with my Neuro at the time and I managed to read them all except for 1. Most took a lot of 'concentrating' before I got it. I will be asking for this test again in April when I see him. I don't think I have ever had a problem with red. I remember in December a friend asked me to cover one eye and look at red and then the other eye - didn't notice anything different. But I never tested green.
Wow I think we are going to see some interesting correlations arising between us all in the coming weeks.
