To those without insurance/who can't afford this

We were given a tremendous gift yesterday. Dr. Mark Haacke has challenged the MS/radiology world to look at a new paradigm. He is a giant in the world of radiology and disease diagnosis.

If you live anywhere near a university that has a radiology department and diagnoses MS using MRI...PLEASE do this. (radeck, I'm talking to you-dear friend)

Send Dr. Haacke's website to the school with the following introduction:

"I am an MS patient and ...

Questions, points,... (but I'm a believer!)

Let me begin by saying I truly believe this is a great step for us, I think it has benefits, I have my info in to Dr. Dake waiting for a call so I can be scheduled and even without 'scientific' proof of it helping MS if anybody without MS has this problem it should be fixed.

A few 'devils advocate' questions just so I can hear what everybody thinks (and maybe everybody can use ...

MS / MRV / SWI new web site!

I have been chasing (some may say stalking... but that's for a court to decide.... I digress) one particular professional (Dr Haake... you didn't hear me say that...) for a few weeks now, and he has told me they are working on a "Protocol" for using MRV's for looking for CCSVI in MS.

Tinnitus and CCSVI

I'm curious how many of you suffer from tinnitus ie. ringing in the ears? I most certainly do and it's what lead me to my soft diagnosis of MS. My ENT informed me of the possibilty of ms after a brain mri showed some irregularities about 1 1/2 years ago.

From the NIH:
Results of the first-ever autopsy study of brains from people with restless legs syndrome (RLS) suggest that the disorder may result from inefficient processing of iron in certain brain cells. The findings provide a possible explanation for this disorder and may lead to new ways of treating the disease.

The researchers found no evidence of lost or damaged cells in the RLS brains. Instead, they found that receptors which help cells absorb ...

post surgical followup

So does everyone who gets the stents have to go back out 2 months later to be checked out?

Just wondering since I don't really have a lot of money for plane tickets, hotels, etc ... for some reason I didn't consider the followup needs until today.
