CCSVI and change of seasons

Postby guitarguy » Tue Nov 03, 2009 8:42 am

Would change of seasons affect someone with CCSVI?

Everytime the seasons change, I feel horrible. I have been so dizzy and nausious the past 4 days, it's very miserable. I thought I had a flu or cold at first, but no fever or or other symptoms. Besides this is how my relapses often start.

There is so much information here and I have probably absorbed about 50% of it. it's overwhelming for me. :oops:

My husband has MS. When he was RRMS, he almost always had a relapse in the Spring, around the same time as those with allergies.

I don't know - I know that Vasomotor Rhintitis can be aggravated by seasonal changes, does that sound like anything you experience?

I am better in warmer seasons. I think most people tend to get viruses and colds when the seasons change so maybe this triggers relapses

I know for sure that the spring season, early April through mid-May, is usually when I get hit the hardest. From the very first dx in April to several acute attacks in and around this time frame. I always kind of thought it had something to do with allergies?

But also, some of the worst episodes I've had were after exposure to high heat in the summer months.

So yes, I do believe that the season changes has some impact on the activity of MS - at least in my opinion.

But now with the discovery of CCSVI, this is probably no longer valid!! Perhaps the change of season has some influence on blood pressure, flow, density or what ever? I don't know, but I do know that I pay a lot more attention in the spring (for whatever that's worth).
