Pseudo relapses

Radek mentioned having a 'pseudo relapse' and then qualified it as 'imaginary'. Actually, the way my neuro explained pseudo relapses to me was that something (maybe heat, excess exertion, stress, emotional upset, etc) would trigger something (maybe inflammation) that would cause actual symptoms, but that they didn't stick around as long as an exacerbation would. He said he thought I had one after having a bad emotional upset...I was upset that he thought I was ...

EGCG, iron and the brain

Ursula, our German EGCG trial participant posted over in the Drug Pipeline

Wanted to make sure all CCSVI stento-teers and CCSVI curious knew about the iron chelating properties of EGCG (green tea extract)- thanks to Sharon for pointing this out again to Ursula-
Jeff's been on it for a year or so, as part of the endothelial health program. As we learn more about iron deposition in MS, ...

the 'Random CCSVI Notions' thread

It seems like many of us get random ideas about how CCSVI night be connected to some other thing - sometimes they don't seem worth mentioning in their own thread. I thought it might be neat to have a place to put the results of these brainstorms - if they happen to get some traction in here, perhaps at that point break it out into a new thread.

The idea being that nothing is too ...

Need a workable, simple definition of CCSVI & stenting

Hi everyone,

I've mentioned this elsewhere in posts, but now I'm starting a new thread about the huge need for a short, simple definition of CCSVI that explains the concept and stenting for both the jugular and azygous veins.

But at least in my case Dr. Schelling said after seeing my MRT's that I have quite definitely a problem with the veins concerning the lesions in my head (I also have lesions in the spine but the azygos vein can't ...
