Thousands Of NMO Patients Misdiagnosed w/ MS

This article on Medical News Today is the first time I’ve heard of Devic's disease or neuromyelitis optica. And it sure does sound a lot like Multiple Sclerosis.

Zombie science: A sinister consequence of evaluating scientific theories purely on the basis of enlightened self-interest

Thanks to Thomas for posting this on the general thread-

Summary- Although the classical ideal is that scientific theories are evaluated by a careful teasing-out of their internal logic and external implications, and checking whether these deductions and predictions are in-line-with old and new observations; the fact that so many vague, dumb or incoherent scientific theories are apparently ...

Crossing My Fingers...

I'm "new" here too. I am so excited about CCSVI. I have been telling everyone about it. I have sent all my paperwork to Dr. Dake, just waiting to hear back from him. My mom wants to have all of her 7 children tested for CCSVI, when it becomes more available, because she has 2 daughters and a sister with MS and two other daughters who are starting to show possible signs of MS. I ...

Poems on my MS - pre and post CCSVI

Poem on my MS - Pre CCSVI
Tuesday January 13, 2009
Jill Nolan

What am I but this custard ?
These ion pumps and channels
This mess of ganglia and pathways
and cortex, all in an ancient salt sea,
Organized by energy and time into crevasses and bumps
and neurotransmitters going hither and thither
Flowing to say wake ! and sleep ! and cry !
And I am at it's mercy, it is without mercy. ...

Should PPMS'ers and SPMS'ers get to "go first"?

Hi all... I'm still really new here, but then again not really, since I've been reading every post on CCSVI for a couple months now. I feel like I know many of you! Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experiences.

I've had Dr. Dake's address and phone number sitting on my counter for several weeks, trying to decide if I should begin the process of getting on his waiting list. It's not that I'm unsure ...

A few pics from my scan by Dr. Haacke

I am still waiting on the 3-d images from Dr Haacke, but these scans are pretty telling. For those who don't know, I only have one internal jugular.

If you look at the very bright part of the top of the jugular, then go about one inch down, you can see where the bone from the vertebrae is pinching the jugular. There is also more narrowing about two-thirds of the way down, which I didn't ...

Canada

I ran across this post on another site (ratemds.com) and thought the information might be useful here. It was posted 11/10/09.

I have some contact info for you regarding testing. First of all, in Saskatchewan, at the Saskatoon City Hospital, you will want to call the office of Katherine Knox,MD, FRCPC at 655-8447. The lady I spoke with there is Bev. They say that they will begin testing in a couple of months after some ...

Stanford helps an innovator

This article has nothing to do with CCSVI, but I found it interesting because of the possible use of the invention in cancer and because Dr. Dake and the interventional radiologists at Stanford encouraged the inventor to move forward.

Relapses - when do they occur?

Hi - this is my first post - so please bear with me :-)

I've been reading a lot about the CCSVI topic, and I am very optimistic about this being the real reason for MS.

I have RRMS, and I would like to discuss the following:

At what time of the day do you normally discover that you've had a relapse, or worsening of your MS-symptoms? ...
