Despite our long disputes and different opinions, I consider you an e-friend of mine. I have even changed my name to "sou(r)" for you!
Let's make it simple. If sb have MS, it is very likely to have CCSVI, too, which is a different condition.
- It seems that correcting CCSVI leads to a favourable neurologic outcome.
- The vast majority of this forum's people who were tested for it were found positive.
- Since it is (relatively) easily corrected, why not to have it fixed, since it has been proven safe?
- MS is so different for each of us. Others have numbness, others spasticity, others paralysis, others incontinence. Why do all have blood flow problems? Veins are not directly controlled by the nervous system. They shouldn't.
- The NMSS should work for the interest of the patients. They have funded tons of research less promising, why be so negative against this, which has a reasonable explanation?
The list could grow much longer. Could you answer these questions? I bet that only research can, but it has to be funded first. Why not fund it or conduct it?
PS: I want to have my left jugular further tested. Not for MS, but for these headaches!
