I've slept on a 6" inclined bed since last year before my stent treatment in June 09. 3 months after the operation I became pregnant and my MS has been substantially worse since then and I suffered a relapse around week 20 of the pregnancy. The IBT has not prevented this deterioration. I also wonder whether I should revert to a flat bed since the jugulars are open.

"Are you sleeping with your legs stretched out in bed or are your knees up near your body?" - sleeping with legs stretched out and hands stretched down too.
"Are you sitting for long periods during the day and evening? If so are you sitting in accordance with the photographs supplied?" - yes, way many hours, no doubt. Just got rid of office chair because it was more or less cutting off the circulation in the back portion of thighs. Is there a type of chair that takes the pressure off that area?
"Do you wear compression stockings in bed?" - Yes, just started 2 nights ago - 10-20's.
"Where do you live (general location) for example river valley, coast, near a lake, on top of a hill, arid, damp, humid?" - 8 blocks from the ocean near Vancouver BC.
Many thanks, in advance.
