Soooo much info here, this very well may have already been answered but I cannot find it!
I am curious about what research has said regarding people who have CCSVI and the age of onset of MS.
Has there been any info about whether this (CCSVI) is something that people with MS are born with or that they develop?
If they have this constriction of veins from birth, why does it generally take over 25 years for MS to develop?
I'd love to get some feedback on this if anyone has come across answers to these questions.
Also, on a similar note, my mother-in-law has MS and so there is a (still slight) chance that my husband may have the genetic predisposition for it. IF it turns out that CCSVI is the culprit behind this disease, has anyone heard of things that offspring or relatives can do (outside of having their jugulars scanned
) to avoid developing the disease?
I realize the research is new and there aren't answers to everything but if anyone has any feedback I would LOVE it!
PS. See my intro (Hello All!) in the Introductions thread.
