CCSVI and Ventriculomegaly?

Hi there... I've been dx'd with MS for 6 years or so now. When I had my first MRI, they noted mild stable ventriculomegaly. This is sort of a congenital issue that hasn't caused me any symptoms. My understanding of ventriculomegaly is that it can be caused by impaired drainage of CSF from the brain during fetal development, and I can't help but wonder if this might be related to the drainage issues described in ...

My doppler scan

Hi all.

My radiologist and I have attempted to perform a doppler scan following the Zamboni protocol. However, we have found that we did not have enough information to perform it properly. In addition, we did not have a 2.5 MHz transmitter head to perform the transcranial.

But we have come across 2 very strange findings:

1. We couldn't detect the flow of the left jugular when standing upright. The flow of the right jugular ...

Coumadin and LDN ?

I'm a little frustrated at the time it is taking me to recover my strength and stamina to at least their pre-stent procedure levels.

It will be 4 weeks tomorrow that I returned home. I'd guess my stamina and walking strength are still only 50% of what they were before the procedure. Yes, everyday is still a little better, but I still start to crash at about 7pm, in bed soon after, and spend about ...

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!

CCSVI Wikipedia typos in English version

Sorry if this has been mentioned already, but . . .

There are many glaring typos on the Wikipedia page for CCSVI in the English version which makes me think there is a problem with translation.

The info presented should also be checked for accuracy by someone more knowledgeable than I.

The page mentions MS briefly, but nonetheless, if this procedure is to be taken seriously, then the page should be corrected.

Some people here ...
