CCSVI and Colloidal

Does anyone know if it is safe to take "Colloidal Silver" (internally) after being diagnosed with CCSVI?
I have had angioplasty but it has been unsuccessful and I don't want to do any more damage than the m.s. is doing.
Will this cross the blood brain barrier and be harmful to my brain? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated as I am looking for alternative treatments for sinus infections, etc. I'd rather skip ...

Enough to see a doctor?

I have been having some weird (annoying but not impeding on my life) sensations for a couple of years now. Tingling in my fingers, first two toes on each foot, and what feels like a hair or tickling on my face. My right leg sometimes feels like it is wet but nothing is there. I also have noticed that when I'm walking, my foot (front of toe) catches and I trip much more frequently.

I ...

Biomarkers: Distinction between RRMS and PMS

They do not say wether they refer to primary-progressive or SPMS

Sulfatide isoform pattern in cerebrospinal fluid discriminates progressive MS from relapsing-remitting MS.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS). Several biomarkers including proteins and lipids have been reported in MS cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), reflecting different aspects of the pathophysiology particularly of relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS).

Sulfatide, abundant in the myelin sheath ...

MS pain

I know this topic may stir up the proverbial hornets nest. But I have had multiple sclerosis now for nearly 12 years. Other than some initial optic pain, I have never experienced pain. I know that for a long while many doctors did not think that MS even caused pain. Now it seems that every forum I click on, especially on Facebook, people treat pain as the number one symptom. It’s probably the complaint I ...

Pathogenic distinction between PP and SPMS still debated

It seems that PPMS and SPMS courses are different.

Demyelination and Neurodegeneration along the Visual Pathway are more prominent in Secondary Progressive than Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis.

Objective: We aimed at using visual evoked potentials-VEPs and optical coherence tomography-OCT to compare the extent of demyelination and neurodegeneration in the visual pathway of primary progressive-PP and secondary progressive-SP MS patients.

Background: The pathophysiologic distinction between PP and SPMS is ...

MitoQ: Adverse Effects

The targeted anti-oxidant MitoQ causes mitochondrial swelling and depolarization in kidney tissue.
Physiol Rep. 2018 Apr;6(7):e13667.

    Kidney proximal tubules (PTs) contain a high density of mitochondria, which are required to generate ATP to power solute transport. Mitochondrial dysfunction is implicated in the pathogenesis of numerous kidney diseases. Damaged mitochondria are thought to produce excess reactive oxygen species (ROS), which can lead to oxidative stress and activation of cell death pathways. MitoQ is a mitochondrial ...
