Must read: JNNP eLetters for Zamboni's CCSVI article

Hello Everyone,

I'd like for my first thread to be a valuable contribution to your wonderful forum.

I have learned much, and my doctors and I (Albany, NY) are scheduling the necessary tests to see if I'm a potential candidate for CCSVI corrective measures.

I hope the JNNP-published eLetters (below) to the editors of JNNP regarding Prof. Zamboni's CCSVI article will make for interesting reading and discussion. I apologize if these have already been posted. ...

Question about malfunction

I had a weird thing happen with my shot last night and just wondered if anyone else has had this happen. The Rebif was leaking out the front through the needle without me pressing on the plunger and then all of a sudden the plunger fell out the back of the needle and the Rebif went all over my leg. Been doing this for 3 years and never had this happen. Do I call my ...

Paying for Testing and Intervention at Stanford

I talked with Alex at Dr. Dake's office last week and asked her if I needed to call my insurance (PPO) or what. She said she would check with them and get back with me. Haven't heard yet. Don't know if others insurance is covering the testing and intervention. Can't set up something definite with Stanford until I know about the insurance because if it is not going to cover the 80% looks like we ...

My symptoms started 2.5 years ago, a couple of months after some lymph nodes swelled up in my neck. When the lymph nodes didn't go down, they were removed and biopsied, dx: Mono.

I know a lot of people say their MS was triggered by an infection like mono. (I've not been diagnosed with MS and have not yet seen an MS specialist, but my neuro suspects MS because of my symptoms and positive spinal ...

First MRI- What to Expect?

Hello, I just had an MRI done recently to see if ms is the cause of my many elusive symptoms. Talked to a few people on here and they said it sounds like ms. Also did my own research. One doctor thinks fibromyalgia, which is a possiblity. The other said "could be ms. could be" in her slick russian accent- then patted me on the shoulder and said "moose and squirrel. moose and squirrel." ...

A theoretical kind of question

Do any of you experts know why Dr Wheldon and the Vanderbilt group focused on a bacterial rather than a viral explanation for MS, and why particularly CPn rather than any other kind of bacterial infection?

CT Scan instead of MRV

In another thread it is mentioned Dr Dake may be moving to CT Scan instead of MRV to diagnose CCSVI. About 10 months ago, I had a CT Scan of my skull area so a neurosurgeon could see all the arteries and such in the base of my skull in case he needed to operate on my skull (he did not end up needing to operate).

I don't know if there is a specific way ...
