Viruses: Hypoxia and viruses reactivation. CCSVI?

Could be this the explanation of the relationship between CCSVI and MS?

This article points out that endogenous retroviruses that are normally latent reactivate under hypoxia (bad blood flow) conditions.

Investigation of Endogenous Retrovirus Sequences in the Neighborhood of Genes Up-regulated in a Neuroblastoma Model after Treatment with Hypoxia-Mimetic Cobalt Chloride

Human endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) have been found to be associated with different diseases, e.g., multiple sclerosis (MS). ...

gnawing, boring, itching sensation

I'm coming up to 14yrs since diagnosis - no meds - gluten free vegan and eat fish. I can still walk 5kms without having to sit down, but can't run very well. About 1yr ago I developed this horrible annoying itching, boring, gnawing sensation on the right side of my head - just by ear - it comes and goes. I guess it's the MS. Some days it's worse than others, sometimes if I lie ...

Ness L300 2 left and 2 right

So for I have charged one of these and I believe it communicates as it should.

One unit is missing case and foot sensor. It looks like you can "synchronize" it with the another one or would need to be purchased.

I have 2 left medium 1right medium 1 right small. 2 programming cradles with 1 Dell X51 PDA. Need to find a charger for the PDA and will look into my electronics inventory as ...

MS news today

This morning's edition talks about diet. The talking heads are recommending a heart-healthy balanced diet. The only supplement needed is Vitamin D. I was seen by a specialist a few days ago. He said essentially the same thing. The only new item for me was the need for water. I drink a gallon of coffee and probably a quart of diet ginger ale daily. I can't remember the last time I got a glass of ...

2018 study: Serum mag inversely associated w EBV viral load

Plasma magnesium is inversely associated with Epstein-Barr virus load in peripheral blood and Burkitt lymphoma in Uganda ... 2117302035

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) causes endemic Burkitt lymphoma (eBL). EBV control was improved by magnesium (Mg2+) supplementation in XMEN, an X-linked genetic disease associated with Mg2+ deficiency, high circulating EBV levels (viral loads), and EBV-related lymphomas. We, therefore, investigated the relationship between Mg2+ levels and EBV levels and ...

My mom is 75 and has been living with PPMS for 25 years

I have watched my Mom decline for 25 years. She is lucky enough to be living at home with a 24 hour caregiver. She has been non weight bearing for more than a decade and has the use of one arm - sort of. She needs a lift to get out of bed and has a Class 4 wheelchair. She has cognitive decline and struggles following instructions that have more than 1 or 2 steps. ...

Neuromuscular Specialist?

Hello again everyone. I haven't posted in awhile but wanted to get some feedback on a potential referral. My neurologist hasn't been able to figure out what's causing my symptoms (primarily leg stiffness and widespread muscle twitching/spasms). My symptoms have been getting worse lately. My latest NCV test had some numbers out of the normal range but the EMG (needle) test apparently was fine so both tests were considered normal. I received a message from ...

2003 study: dietary extremes and breast cancer mortality

moderation once again key.
makes sense to me that while plenty of people may need to dial certain things back, others can actually need more.
like i did... having been firmly in the 'no appreciable dietary fat' camp (nor protein, nor other key essentials) in the leadup to dx.
no one dietary strategy should be expected to make sense for all. from wherever you start, work towards the middle of the road - whatever that ...
