CCSVI Research Funds

There are now three funds dedicated to CCSVI research, and I thought it would be useful to have them all in one place. I’ve listed the link to the TIMS discussion on the topic relating to the fund as well as the link to each fund. The three funds are:

1. Dr. Dake’s MS Innovations Fund at Stanford University. If you donate to this fund, please remember to note that your donation is in memory ...

Rose Testing/Stents

Hi All.
I go to Stanford tomorrow Oct 19/ Stenting Oct 20th if indicated.

CCSVI and Chronic Sinusitis?

I just recently had my first allergy test appointment, and the doctor told me be believed I had chronic sinusitis... then I read about sleeping positions at and it made me wonder if there's a lot more people with MS that have nasal congestion every morning? (Every morning I have to spit out a little phlegm that seems lodged in my throat... this is from as far as ...

Compassionate Treatment

I am going to throw this highly speculative post in here about compassionate use of new experimental technology.

I believe it is time to acknowledge the truth we all know on some level but do not want to discuss.

Dr Dake can't possibly treat all the MSers who want help.

AND at some point, he will be required to do a trial with inclusion criteria. As soon as he is required to outline an actual ...

Opinions of likely changes please after ccsvi

I am very keen to have this procedure and would welcome your input on changes I can expect.
I have been diagnosed with Primary Progressive for twelve years now.
I'm guessing my EDSS is about 6.5.
What are my chances of improvement, or at least stabilization?
Is there anyone in a similar position to me who's had it? How did it go?

radeck's Stanford experience

I had an MRV Wed night and have have an appointment with Dr. Dake Monday morning (hey Rhonda and Rose, hope to run into you...).

Not much informative to say at this point, except that the technician doing the MRA said afterwards that I breathed really regularly and that made the images come out crisp. I wasn't aware that this mattered, so y'all might want to practice some deep breathing before the next scan. I ...

CCSVI and sweating, etc

Hellou again, I'm always asking questions and once again. This time about ccsvi and it's relation to temperature issues and sweating. Many operated people has said that they have felt better dealing with hot/warm weather and sweating also.

Is there scientific explanation for this, yet? Thank you.

I am going to Stanford!

Well, I have dates. I am going to be at Stanford November 9th and 10th. I have been pretty nervous, but when Darcy gave me the dates, I found myself relieved. (Yep, that's right, Dr. Dake has more help! She said she was new because they were so busy! No one here would have predicted that, would they?)

I am meeting with an internal medicine doctor on November 4th. This name was given to me ...
