Curious who has been tested and what your results were and what info you can share. What were your treatments and did anyone have the actual surgical procedure.

Thanks for any feedback On this topic.

My twin did about a year and a half ago and she felt wonderful. But she's clogged back up again.

She wants to do the procedure again since it was covered by her insurance (she has an MS diagnosis) and it was a piece of cake.

I looked into it for Autonomic Dysfunction but decided against it. It's invasive. I would hate to go through it and have to repeat it.

Have you tried Doxycycline? When I first had CCSVI like symptoms it felt like I had a blockage to my head. It felt like I was going to have a stroke.


I could feel the veins in my neck impeding the flow of blood to my head. My headaches, brain fog, dizziness were unbearable.


I was given a few ABX, but nothing worked for that until Doxy. I could not believe how many symptoms it took away. Most likely it killed many things, but it also put Borrelia into cyst form. I gradually got worst over time, in terms of other & new symptoms.


My head, neck, & CCSVI are never as hellish as it was. Be warned that in the beginning of Doxy, it will increase your head pressure. It will also kill some bacteria & make you feel worst. I almost gave up on it & felt like I was getting worst.

After the 3rd week on it, I just kept on getting better & better & even had energy back during that time.

I was tested in Sept. using the doppler. There is a center in Atlanta.. It is a painless test.

The only downside is you have to lay very still. The test took me about 2 hours.

My results were borderline. So, since my insurance wouldn't pay for the surgery (5,000) and it may or may not work, I decided to wait.

I think if I would have meet all the criteria, I would have had the surgery.

Hope this helps

Thanks all. Still researching
Yes I've treated with doxy without help described
I feel the CCSVI is just caused by biofilms but when
You have treated that so many years and still show a
blood blockage and a highly positive CCSVI test it makes
You feel like you need a rotter rooter run through your veins
And they should be doing a clean out procedure and not just
The stents. That will be next I am sure of it. I believe the varied success rate is because that haven't been cleaning out the blockages mechanically and sucking it out before implanting stents and also a after care protocol to help keep the biofilms from rebuilding and fibrins from replanting all along sides should be highly formulated to sustain as long a duration as possible.

I was not aware that using stents with this procedure was common. I know the person who handled my procedure (and many others in my area) did not use stents for me, and I think he rarely used stents. That was something he was sure to discuss with the patient before the procedure, whether stents might be used if the success desired was not achieved without them. They do have additional risk, as they can come free and block blood flow into the heart. I think because of this, the doc who did my procedure generally recommended against them, but perhaps he might use them in very extreme situations (if the person was very sick and had little hope without them).

Springshowers, Go to a site called prettyill.com.

It is written by a doctor who got very sick after a viral trigger. She talks extensively about CCSVI.

She is very knowledgeable.
