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 to be starting soon, which is NOW up.

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

Tinnitus and CCSVI

I'm curious how many of you suffer from tinnitus ie. ringing in the ears? I most certainly do and it's what lead me to my soft diagnosis of MS. My ENT informed me of the possibilty of ms after a brain mri showed some irregularities about 1 1/2 years ago.

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 ...

Thank you Jamie and Mel!

Since your post about "What a wonderful trip" keeps getting hijacked, I thought I'd start a new one for you.

post surgical followup

So does everyone who gets the stents have to go back out 2 months later to be checked out?

Just wondering since I don't really have a lot of money for plane tickets, hotels, etc ... for some reason I didn't consider the followup needs until today.

Eduard Rindfleisch (1836-1908)

Dr. Eliott Frohman spoke of Dr. Rindfleisch and his theory of venous congestion in Bologna, and I finally got around to reading some of his observations of MS brains.

Further insight into the pathophysiology of MS was provided by Eduard Rindfleisch, a 19th century German pathologist, who analysed post-mortem brain samples from MS patients.

In 1863, Rindfleisch reported a key finding that paved the way for theories of inflammatory involvement in the aetiology of MS. ...

CCSVI and epigentics

I posted this something similar in the genes section.
I watched a programme yesterday all about epigenetics and identical twins.
They studied 2 cases where 1 twin developed Lukemia and the other didn't and in another set of twins 1 developed Type 1 diabetes and the other didn't. They concluded that the enviroment would have changed their epigenetics as they were 100% genetic clones of eachother.

The reason I am writing this in the ...

Question if this tool would be usefull..

Here's a copy of a post from the LDN thread about alcohol. It refers to a web page where they have some scans of blood flow in brains of people wo have different issues. Just wondering if this could be a diagnostic tool for before/after CCSVI interventions...
NHE wrote:Alcohol also doesn't help the brain. In fact, quite the opposite occurs. It restricts blood flow to the brain which can be seen in these Single Photon Emission ...
