My CCSVI Theory for common MS Symptoms - need feedback

Postby rssugg » Fri Oct 09, 2009 10:02 am

I have a theory after doing a bit of research on CCSVI and common symptoms of MS including anxiety, ear problems, constipation, etc.

Doctors are currently doing a study on CCSVI (if you aren’t familiar, see here http://brain.hastypastry.net/forums/sho ... 418&page=2) and they found that all folks diagnosed with MS had blockages in either one of two areas. One is the jugular vein and the other is a vein in your back called the azygos.

Well, back to my theory. The jugular vein and the vagus nerve (which causes anxiety) both leave the skull through the same foramen (or ‘skull hole’ - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jugular_foramen ). I think that the jugular is blocked often at the level of the foramen and squeezes or redirects the vagus nerve against the skull and causes irritation or damage.

The vagus nerve links the ear (hearing loss, tinnitus), the thyroid (low body temp in my case), heart/lung/ stomach/diaphragm (anxiety), and large intestine (many MS folks have constipation).

Hi.

Both intestines are the only organs of our body that have their own, private nervous system. Constipation in MS is more likely to be caused by lack of movement/exercise than direct neuronal damage.

But the other parts of your theory could make sense. The situation inside our bodies is literally chaotic.

rssug,
I am sorry to say that your theory does not make sense. The strictures of the jugular veins do not cause an anatomical espansion of the vessel and cannot compress the vagus nerve. Thank you for your effort: I am sure your intention is to help.

I'm not sure that that's true, GiCi. After all the venous beds in the MS brain are dramatically larger than their non-MS counterparts suggesting that the veins upstream of the constrictions are dramatically dilated and this could perhaps compress the vagus nerve. I wonder if something similar is happening in Parkinson's.
