Lucchinetti pattern III and CCSVI

This is an old article but I found it just now. I found it specially interesting because CCSVI theory didn't still exists at the time it was published.

The author besides hypothesizes two possible mechanisms: vascular impairment leading to defective microcirculation, and local production of toxins that alter the mithocondrial energy metabolism.

Optic neuritis on MRI 6mo later?

At the end of November, I had a major problem with my left eye. (I'm 32.) Overnight, my vision went from normal to an absolute blur. (I could see nothing on the Snellen chart.) I saw the ophthalmologist about it two weeks in, but he could see nothing inside my eye that might have caused the problem. Although that is a common finding in optic neuritis, he would not diagnose it as optic neuritis because ...

Drugs for Dizziness?
