In January 2006, coming back from a diving trip, I complained of tingling in my left forearm and sensory problems in my right forearm. A visit to the man who would become my physician, Dr. Tassou, encouraged me to do my first MRI. The radiologist detected a lesion on the second cervical, “but not near the spinal cord; in the spinal cord !”
Two months after the diagnosis of MS (found after pressing on the optic nerve, which made me temporarily blind in the left eye), I went back to work. I followed a treatment regimen of interferon and a homeopathic diet, free from gluten and milk. In late 2008, my President asked me to stop wroking for my own protection. So I stopped working, but I was still covered by my company insurance.
In September 2008, I suffered a flare on the optic nerve, which caused a cortisone bolus and diplopia. This situation persisted and my condition gradually deteriorated: faulty balance, speech loss, writing problems, continual tiredness, urinary incontinence and untimely diplopia, which is quite disturbing when it happpens.
I’ve always been interested in stem cell therapies. So, when I searched the internet for “stem cell therapy and multiple sclerosis”, I naturally found the clinics web site. I also learned that I might improve with stem cell angiography and angioplasty if needed.
Therefore, once screened, I found myself at the ckinic awaiting stem cell therapy.
The week went very well; serious diagnostics including MRI scanners and Doppler Ultrasound, which showed that my right and left jugular veins were blocked and needed two balloons on the left and one balloon on the right).
After treatment, I could immediately see the results: static equilibrium back to normal and incontinence disappeared.
Improvemenst still pending are balance and motor skills deterioration, verbal and written speech, fatigue (except the evening!), and untimely diplopia.*
