The study, published Monday in The Canadian Medical Association Journal, found no link between chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) and MS.

Using ultrasound and MRI technology, University of Calgary neurologist Dr. Fiona Costello and her colleagues tested the criteria used to diagnose a patient with CCSVI on a group of MS patients and healthy controls.

Hi, I am new to the group but have a question that I hope someone can answer. Is there a time factor when the MS symptoms stop progressing. I am nearly 60 and I am getting worse. Thanks for any input I receive.

Diane,
There are no time factors.
Please ask your neurologist to explain this in greater detail
Regards
Stuart
