A forum to discuss Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency and its relationship to Multiple Sclerosis.

I made contact with Stanford and this is my first post

Hello to all on this forum!

I have been monitoring since my RRMS dx in 2004. I've been following the CCSVI forum since April or May. I recently went off Tysabri after 24 doses (last dose 8 weeks ago). The CCSVI model and research makes so much sense to me. I think it is a very exciting time for the MS community. I made the decision to explore my possibility of being treated by ...

Stenosis and severity of MS correlation


The only thing I can't work out is why people who seem to only have maybe 1 jugular occluded can be worse off then say someone who has 2 occluded jugulars.

Round 2 for skydog at Stanford

Sure feels good feeling good again. Now that the pain has made its way from my neck slowly down the shoulders to the arms and now rests just slightly in my right elbow. How does this happen this way? Procedure # 2. The whole trip from start to finish couldn't be better. It was perfect in all aspects. We arrived early and stayed late which gave time for meeting three of our fellow Patients/forum members. ...

Brain Bucket

Kind of an interesting video, granted the MRI does not show the jugular veins, but still a cool invention.

I have felt these as long as I can remember and never mentioned them because I thought it was normal. Come to find out my husband and everyone else who is "healthy" that I have asked does not.

I have not been tested for CCSVI, but I do have MS, ...
