Ok MRV done, are these pictures normal to you?

Ok, here are a few pictures of my today MRV session.

Do these pictures show CCSVI on ur opinion?
My radiologist says they are normal....





Health insurance

I was booted from my state coverage when I was awarded Social Security in July. Which means, I don't have coverage and can't find a carrier who will cover me. I'm so scared. I have notified my senator, the insurance commissioner, and every MS organization I can think of.

Does anyone know where I can go?

Doctors won't see w/out coverage so I can't get a prescription for anything. Where should I be looking?

Any ...

If the pictures I've seen cause problems, then I'm dead!

Three years of symptoms (cognitive difficulties, tinnitus, fatigue) and no answers. My scans show I only have one jugular instead of two, and the one I have is severely pinched. No answers from any Dr's so far, so maybe this can be a first step for me. Check these scans out. I hope this works ;)



Thanks for your interest,


Sick of people treating you like a disease

Okay, I'm mostly venting, but I'm soo sick of people treating you like a disease, not a normal person! I know some people might just be trying to "have your best interest in mind" but the majority of people giving you "advice" don't know anything about you or your disease!

I've been searching the forums for information about the use of Solumedrol during an exacerbation.

That has always been the standard response from any neuro that I have been with. 1000mg/day IV for 5 days.

I HATE what it does to me- fat and grumpy. Last year an episode hit me that was really life endangering and was continuing to progress. The steroids didn't help.
Right now I've got another one happening that isn't as ...

Forceps as a cause???

I was a forceps delivery. I'm curious. Any others delivered with the help of forceps?

Bilateral obstruction of the internal jugular veins is rare in the neonatal period and no long-term follow-up has been reported yet. We report two cases. The first developped an extensive thrombosis of superior veina cava related to a central veinous line, the second an unilateral thrombosis of the transverse-sigmoid sinus associated to a constitutional hypoplasia of the contralateral jugular vein. ...

I'm excited to have found this site!

Hello Everyone,
I'm Cara.
I’m very excited to have found this site. My primary tactic for dealing with MS since I was diagnosed in 1993 (I'm 46 now) has been denial and so I didn’t often reach out to others or the internet for information.
This technique worked- for a while. I have tried to live a healthy life and have taken some supplements, I’ve tried copaxone, avonex and now I’ve been on Beta-Seron for ...
