My magnetic pillow and CCSVI - discard it?

Postby Wonderfulworld » Tue Sep 29, 2009 2:05 am

I am watching CCSVI with HUGE hope - think it might be the 50% commonality to all MS'ers we were looking for - the other 50% I am guessing might be variable (EBV, CPn, etc). I am so excited about CCSVI.

Last night I just had a sudden thought - I have used a magnetic pillow for the last 8 years. It has small magnets - about a half an inch - sewn into a lining that you put in your pillow. I started using it to help with neck pain from MS and just kept going.

But I wonder now should I discard it? If CCSVI is true surely the magnets will draw iron up to my head area or the side of my head nearest the pillow? Or it will keep increased blood in my head perhaps? Maybe it does nothing at all! :lol:

My EDSS is stable for the last 5 years so it's not harming me measurably, per se. Just wondering about your thoughts on it.

I don't suppose it's doing any harm. I would think the magnets would have to be very strong to have an effect on the iron in your blood but who knows...
