shell, maybe you can get a referral to a diff neuro, or somebody more... vascular??? i have been talking with my doc, bit by bit, and we are trying to figure out who (besides Haacke) might be receptive at mac. i have a feeling my own neuro might have a no response too, but that remains to be seen. given the media release yesterday by MSSC, there may be a few studies cropping up over the next year that you could try to get into. i have never tried to keep track of new studies recruiting, but there are a lot of ppl on here who could point you in the right direction for that, i'm sure!
