MS as a vascular disease

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Minagar's paper

Rainer's recent posting of A. Minagar's paper in the General Discussion forum, posted: Sat Jun 28, 2008 1:35 pm should also be here in dignan's thread started with an earlier paper by this Louisiana State researcher A. Minagar, I think.

My opinion, as you know, of course is that the culprit is excess insulin in the bloodstream.

Thanks for reviving this thread. I have also noticed numbness coinciding with vascular color changes. And I agree with what Bob said 2 years ago (maybe he was smarter then) that this may not be the cause but it may be another way to fight MS damage. The lack of attention given to MS as a vascular disease is evident in the old "MS causes no pain" myth whereas anyone who had a headache from this **** can tell you plenty about pain.

I looked up research yesterday on exercise and platelet activation too and from what I could gather: consistent cardio exercise is good for it but going from sedentary to extreme exercise is bad. I still have difficulty grasping how you can have damage to arteries in your brain and not have a stroke.

Thanks for reviving this thread, Lyndacarol!
Have been out of town for a couple of weeks, and returned to read it thru-
I've been researching vascular endothelial cell activation and its relation to MS. Lots of correlation. Pretty sure it's a component of Jeff's MS- because of all of his blood leakage/petechia/bruising issues. Also, we had to stop the minocycline treatment because of intracranial hypertension headaches.
His blood tests always show inflammation.

Will look into more research and post. Here's one from the a.m. ... t/47/2/129

hope everyone is doing OK this summer. We're still smoking and flaming in CA, but praying for an end to the wildfires-
Husband dx RRMS 3/07
dx dual jugular vein stenosis (CCSVI) 4/09
