Tapering off Baclofen question

I have been taking oral Baclofen for almost 3 years. Started at around 30mg a day then last summer increased to 80mg during a relapse. I didn't think it did much at 30mg, so why I went up to 80mg, well I just don't know because I really do not believe it is helping anything. In the last month or so I've flucuated between 60 to 80 as sometimes I just forget to take it. ...

My PCP Is Reading the Research, May Order CT Venography

I met with my primary care physician yesterday, and presented him with 2008 Zamboni research paper. He did a cursory look at it as I explained its implications, and he was impressed enough to commit to reading the paper, as well as further research that I sent him via e-mail last night.

valsalva maneuver, posture

Since I don't think I will be having surgery anytime really soon, I have been poking around a bit seeing what I could learn about how posture might affect the ability of the jugular veins to drain the brain - with the notion that certain positions might be problematic (specifically wondering about computer-hunch position, but havent found any answers on that yet)

I'm finding some interesting stuff about how the jugulars collapse in normal people ...

Collateral Veins

One of the terms we will hear often in the discussion of CCSVI is "collateral veins." I thought it was important to start a thread regarding how these veins function in jugular and azygos blockage.

collateral veins are produced by your body when it is not getting sufficient circulation from a part of the body. If a part of your body is not returning blood back to the heart from a specific vein, your body ...
