I agree that issues with our veins and circulation could well extend beyond the jugulars and azygous. I truly feel benefits from the stenting, e.g. increased stamina, but it's also true that it hasn't changed everything, e.g. my hands and feet still get cold at times. Then again, many of my friends' hands and feet get cold a lot of the time too and they don't have CCSVI or MS
I also have felt many subtle benefits from the stenting, i.e. muscle improvement, but relief from a cold hand and cold leg on the left side is not one of them. What I am realizing is, I really do not know what physical symptoms I can attribute to MS. Maybe the cold left extremeties would be as normal for me as it would be for someone without MS. We assume that everything wrong with us is MS related --- I am finding this to not be the case.
