Brightspot,
No change so far, the migraines begin to return after a few days if I discontinue the daily medication I take to prevent them (480mg verapamil). Last time I tried to wean myself off verapamil was in early November, two months after I was treated for CCSVI. Not sure if and when I'll try this again. The pain can be unbearable, and the preventative med has been working for me now for just over two years.

Brightspot,
My migraines were helped with the CCSVI treatment. I stopped Topamax and haven't had much trouble at all. I have had headaches, but they are mild now and were caused by the nerve damage.
