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. Like many, after my 1st procedure, this was very slow to dissipate - I'd say it was completely abated by about 8 weeks. Very gradual, so if you are feeling like it's 'never' going to get better ...

MS as a Vascular Disease

Don't know if this article has been cited already. Given the obvious relevance of the title, it's a good bet you guys have, so sorry if this is old info. ... MS.pdf.pdf

Rumours of my death ...

… Have been greatly exaggerated. I'm OK! Bob tells me he keeps getting enquiries about my health, so I think I'd better explain. Since November of last year I seem to have had one infection after another: they each knocked me for six and no sooner do I begin recovering from one than another one strikes. The cumulative effect has been to leave me very weak, with little energy for posting or checking out research, ...

How America overpays for drugs

Here's a great article about the stranglehold big pharma has over American healthcare. There's a letter at the bottom which can help Americans lobby their members of Congress for change to get cheaper drugs.

I'm not even American and I'm incensed at the costs you guys have to pay to get healthcare!!

CVI and CCSVI 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..)

- "leaky veins" --> blood ...

I don't think she really knows how to read the results, she said they appeared normal, but she didn't know exactly what my neuro was looking for.

Does anyone here know what to make ...
