Question for those who have had an MRV

I will be a participant in the Jacobs Neurological Institute study and will have an MRV. Is it similar to having an MRI with conrrast?

Very excited about qualifying for this study. Buffalo is my hometown so I will get to visit again. The weather is not as bad as rumored. And if you like chicken wings, Frank and Theresa's Anchor Bar is the HOME of chicken wings and near Buffalo General Hospital and was ...

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. He informed me of the web site http://www.ms-mri.com to be starting soon, which is NOW up.

I haven't checked yet, but I ...

Laying in bed last night I realized that if I squeze my jaw real tight and strain my neck muscles, my tinnitus changes it's pitch. ...

CCSVI and RLS and MS

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 ...
