My Turn!

I leave first thing Thursday morning. Testing scheduled for Friday 10/16. Consult and procedure scheduled for Monday 10/19. I do have to admit a case of nerves has hit me. I think it has more to do with leaving my family and traveling alone, than with the treatment. I wanted to post now because I'll be tying up a million loose ends tomorrow. I'll post my journey. Wish me luck!

Neck problems, tension shoulders, etc and CCSVI

I don't know if this has been disgussed here, but in Finnish forum there was some talking about neck problems, feeling of pressure in head, tension in neck/shoulder area -- and CCSVI? Is there any connection between these?
Looks like these pressure feelings in head and tension neck are quite common in MS?

Why not list CCSVI on Patients Like Me as a treatment?

There are some posts about CCSVI but no members report this as a treatment.

Is there a specific reason why CCSVIers are not using that site to report? I find it a helpful site.
