I have MS, diagnosed in 2001. I had been on most of the ABC drugs in the past & IVIG & still declined. For the past 5+ years I have been on Tysabri. It does slow excaserbations but nothing else. 2 years ago I went to Germany for a stem cell therapy, did nothing for me. I have been using a walker for approx. 4 years and w/ each year I am worse than previousely. Now the buz for CCSVI. My primary care ordered the test for me. They did find I have inflamation of the arteries. Is this a normal symptom for MS or couldd there be something more to it? I have always had overlapping symptoms in the past causing my MS diagnoses to take 4+ years. Now w/ this inflamation I don't know if it is something that needs to be taken care of or just another MS symptom to add to my list.
