How to Understand Remission in CCSVI

One issue that people and doctors have alluded to in the CCSVI discussion as a proof that MS cannot be vascular , is the relapsing/remitting nature of MS. How can we understand exacerbations, flares and remission within this paradigm?

I wanted to start a thread to try and ferret out some research to understand this facet of MS.

This first post is just some rambling thoughts...but we'll get the science going.

One thing that I ...

IPOP/HIPOP Post-chemo update

So, just an update.

I went to IPOP on Monday and Tuesday. My counts were still good (white counts and neuts in the 5000 range). Had off on Wednesday. Went in today (Thursday) and my counts are in the 2200 range. Everything else looks good. They removed the two little stitches.

I'm off from IPOP tomorrow (Friday)....and if on Saturday my counts are good (meaning I don't need any transfusions or anything), I will again ...

Dawson's finger

Hi all.

I was reviewing my older MRIs. I can now understand why my diagnosis was that straight forward. All my brain lesions are either at the edges of the ventricles or around the veins of the periphery of the brain. Pretty interesting finding since this is a very typical "Dawson's finger" image, with lesions being not circular but expanded around the axis of the vein.

How many of you have such a brain condition? ...

First Post - Lots of questions :) Solumedrol?

Hi everyone,

This is my first post here, just joined today and i'm really hoping i could ask some questions?

I'm in the process of seeing a neuro because of numbness on my left side, now more recently diagnosed with a case of optic neuritis by an ophthalmologist.

So, i've had the MRI done...but i'm still waiting to hear back from that. My regular doctor is pretty much convinced it is MS.

When my ophthalmologist ...
