M.E/CFS

I got a magazine on M.E research this morning (as I subscribed when I thought I had M.E). They have discovered abnormal blood flow in the brains of M.E patients as well.

M.E symptom wise can be similar to MS except they do not have lesions and they can recover fully. Usually there is no progression with M.E

Question about incision site for CCSVI

My question is this.
After the surgery, do they make you lie flat to let the incisions heal? Where do they do them exactly?

I ask because right now...
1. I can't lie my head down flat. I get the spins and freak out.
2. I can't put my feet down flat because of the problem with my legs and feet. They have to be elevated pretty high (above the heart) at all times.
3. ...

CCSVI Surgery & MS Constipation question

So, I have MS as we all know. I have had constipation on and off for 4 years. Recently, I can go for 7 days and lately 10 days without going.

My CCSVI Theory for common MS Symptoms - need feedback

I have a theory after doing a bit of research on CCSVI and common symptoms of MS including anxiety, ear problems, constipation, etc.

Doctors are currently doing a study on CCSVI (if you aren’t familiar, see here http://brain.hastypastry.net/forums/sho ... 418&page=2) and they found that all folks diagnosed with MS had blockages in either one of two areas. One is the jugular vein and the other is a vein in ...
