I know how frustrated you must be with your doc. I went through 3 Neuro's in less than 2 months in my search for someone that would prescribe LDN. Finding someone open-minded is one thing... finding a doctor that let's you decide on your own course of treatment is another. My current Neuro is the latter. I know he really didn't believe in LDN, but he prescribed it to me because he believes in letting me decide what's best for me. When I approached him about CCSVI, while he was aware of the theory, he did not believe that it had significant implications for MS'ers. However, he did humor me by providing me with a script for an MRV. Waking up this am, I noticed I had a message on my answering machine. As it turns out, I do not need authorization for the MRV through my insurance company... Sooooo, it looks as though I got my Christmas present after all.
Don't give up searching for a doctor who will let you decide your own course of treatment. This is OUR disease, OUR bodies, and OUR lives. I am thankful to people on the various MS sites that have dedicated their lives to making the transitions into this horrid disease a little easier. I hope someday to be able to pay it forward...
