coincidence?? another Stanford MS story by the same author, the same week. Bit more upbeat, I'd say. wonder why? link to WSJ well, it makes much more sense now why the Stanford neuros were so enraged by Dake's work - he was undermining the big news they had brewing ... "But this is a positive step ...

MS drugs are considered "effective" if they halt disease progression 30% of the time. hell, as I recall they're nowhere near that effective - they don't "halt" anything, merely increase the length of time between relapses slightly in about 30% of patients, and perhaps reduce number of new lesions (...

? + missing jugular valves = CCSVI w/o stenoses?

I originally posted this in the "valve regeneration" thread but thought it was kind of off topic and moved it here ... for context I was MRV scanned @ Stanford and found no significant stenoses. Some of had Doppler tests done that reveal faulty of absent valves in the jugulars - now I'm wondering if...

If the valves in the right JV were missing or compromised (but not blocked), would MRV even show it? I'm wondering if an apparently normal MRV could result when a patient with missing jugular valves is scanned ... So even in the absence of CCSVI, could transient blood reflux up into the brain cause...

Meh. It seems to me like a move to try to control the message to me, we'll see how/if they develop it though. Reminds me of the US MS Society buying paid search engine placement for CCSVI terms, and pointing them to this: http://www.nationalmssociety.org/news/news-detail/index.aspx?nid=2206&gclid=CM...

oops, meant to add:

If it matters, I had taken

-modest amount of marijuana in the evening (vasodilator?)

- a 24 hour antihistamine allergy pill at 7 PM (vasocontrictor)

- coffee throughout the day & one can soda @ PM (caffeine - vasoconstrictor)

fainting? (collapsed last night_

I had some kind of vascular / blood pressure related incident last night that scared me and my GF pretty badly, and I'm wondering if others on here have problems with fainting - actually fall-on-the-floor-fainting - after getting up at night? Last night I got stuck sleeping between my GF and my dog,...

We all take meds. (some of us, anyway) with very little effectiveness and everybody "seems" to accept this without question (30% for the CRABS). And shoot, even that "30%" is way weaker than it sounds ... in 30% of patients they make the period between relapses slightly longer ... but don't show an...
