Wow--checking for venous occlusion--sounds so obvious, why didn't we think of it?
Am sure my doctor will give me a script for this--
And as I recall, (can't this minute find MRI report), there were two options to consider in MRI report re: head lesions.
one was MS, other was cardiovascular--I remember my doc then ran the usual heart blood tests, and all were fine, so with this info and my history, MS clinic (MT Sinai, NYC) ruled MS was the disease. And no further testing re veins occluded etc
Rather then now contact the clinic (which I will eventually do--they are supposed have the top drs in the area, and have just expanded greatly, with all sorts of grants--MS is now considered worth giving grant money to, so watch out, the new meds are going to be glutting the scene), I will first get my dr to send me to that same hospital for the venous test, then if results indicate occlusion, will also contact the MS Department.
Again, thanks for this way around the system!!!
