Ballooning, shoulder pain, etc

Hi all- It's been so wonderful to read all the stories of folks who've seen Dr Dake and had various stenting procedures done. Since I'm the first, Joan mentioned that several are curious about the shoulder/neck pain issue.

CVI and CCSVI similarities?

I have red some texts here about comparing CVI (for example in leg) and CCSVI. Is the veins insufficiency process similar? or what are the similarities? Of course vein dysfunctions can be in different areas of body and this produces different concequences. With my poor english I've notices some common things: (please you can write more about this and "fix" my mistakes..)
