Re: Five CCSVI MS Types

Vesta, i'd like to add my thanks to you for this conversation. i have considered the procedure since i learned of it in 2009. i am glad i did not take dr. zamboni's advice to do it "sooner rather than later", in the case of aging and worsening illness. i have put the whole subject on the back burner...

Re: acupuncture

acupuncture solved my difficulty of feeling as though my legs were bags of cement.
i have not had treatment in several years, but am still doing better than i was when i first sought that help.

Re: do you wonder if you could be amongst the misdiagnosed?

i have a problem with the term, "autoimmune theory"

Re: PEOPLE OVER 70 WITH MS

ATTITUDE The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts.
