Here's the timetable...Ever since diagnosis in '07, I was asking questions about my husband's blood. So many weird test results. He had liver issues, hypercoagulation, low lymphs, high ESR, petechia on his legs. We tested for Lyme, cpn, infections and we found nothing. That's when I got way into supplements with Jimmy and others on here. Saw great results for Jeff, stabilization of his MS and blood, and began to research more about the vascular/MS connections. His neuro didn't agree, but said she couldn't object, because he had stabilized, and was actually healing and doing well. She just shrugged her shoulders.
By last summer, I had the endothelial program together for Jeff, and wrote it down and posted it online last fall. It's on a hosting site...not sure if you read it? I sent it to a few vascular docs, and got some great response. (One doc is at Stanford, and we'll see him next month for venous insufficiency doppler tests.) I then found F.A. Schelling's work online in Nov., and read all his research. When dignan posted Zamboni's research last month, it was the puzzle piece I'd been looking for. A physical manifestation of vascular issues for MS patients. I realize we're w-a-a-y early in all of this, but since you asked, that's been the thought process. Obviously, axonal loss and demyelination is part of disability in MS. But it's not all of it, or immune modulating medications would be much more successful. I'm interested in what begins this process, and I think it's in the blood.
