I got a private message from another guy who said his doc said NO. (I'll keep all other details private)
This irks me. (well more than irks me)
In terms of cost to the system, the scans are WAY chearper than the drugs, let alone the cost to scociety of all the debilitation that MS causes.
In term of safety, a scan is ZERO risk. MS isn't zero risk, blocked veins aren't zero risk.
I admit the data saying this is real is limited, but there is NO data I've seen that contradicts it. So I don't even think they are following the guiding principle of providing "state of the art care"
Has anyone tried to talk to a doctor and not mentioned MS, just said "hmmm, my head turns red, I get headaches, feels hot & swolen, I wonder if I have a blocked veign or circulation problem"?
