A forum to discuss Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency and its relationship to Multiple Sclerosis.


Normally, I don't have much spasticity in my legs. But if I get very stressed (like at the dentist getting a cavity filled, or watching a really scary movie), or if I get real cold real fast, my right leg gets so stiff I can barely work it. As soon as I become less stressed, or I get out of the cold, the spasticity quickly dissipates.

Since CCSVI made the scene, I've come to think ...

Hello, WOW What a great board--now convince my wife

Hi, everyone. I stumbled upon this board and for the first time in years I actually am getting excited about the possibility of some improvement in my wife's MS. She was diagnosed in 2005 with relapsing remitting MS, multiple lesions and lumbar puncture confirmed the neuro's diag. Her original symptoms were blurry vision in the right eye which occured when overheated or stressed out and numbness on the left thigh. Her condition got worse over ...

Cerebrospinal chronic venous insufficiency (CCSVI) and multiple sclerosis

The cause or rather the causes of MS are still largely unknown, but research has made great strides to clarify the way the disease works and thus make possible an early diagnosis and treatment to enable people with MS to maintain a good quality of life. ...

Getting an MRV... Woot woot!

Not sure if this is where to start... But after learning of CCSVI a few days ago, I've been relentlessly researching this phenomenon. I spoke with my Neuro last night who believes this condition is epiphenomena related and doesn't apply to me, but still agreed to give me a script for the MRV. I do not have a medical background, but do have a critical eye and feel as though I have hope for the ...

Rokkit goes to Stanford

I've had the appt for a while, but I just bought plane tickets today, so I figured it was time to come out of the closet. Oct 5 is my date.

My case is a little unique in that I haven't been diagnosed with MS. I don't have MS lesions on my MRI. I do have oligoclonal bands in my CSF. I have a symptom history (including neurogenic bladder) consistent with PPMS. Dr Dake agreed ...

CCSVI beyond Stanford, and in Boston in particular

Hello -

As I noted in the patient log thread, I had my follow up visit in Boston today, at Brigham & Women's, with a doctor whom Dr. Dake recommended. I asked about other patients going there for CCSVI, and, at least at this point, I think I got somewhat of a lukewarm or mixed bag response. On the one hand, he said that they totally could do the tests, but on the other hand, ...

Can It Really Be Fixed?

I've been joyfully reading all the stories of MS improvement here. However, I'm starting to see more accounts of people needing to be re-treated. Maybe the deficient veins in the jugulars draining an MS brain can never be permanently fixed? It reminds me of the efforts engineers have made to keep the Mississippi river in one channel...when they fix it in one place, they create problems upstream or downstream.

Maybe my anti-depressant dosage is too ...
