1st 7 day notes I.T. Tracking date: 01.02.2010
Bad sleep first two nights, very dehidrated (have to drink more water), strange feeling in legs, more stiffness. I could sleep on my back few times.
AFTER CCSVI: 5 th day (5.9.2010):
- Before I could not walk fast, yesterday I could for 100 m
- I tried how long I can walk before rest - about 400 m
- I tried to run slow and I could about 25 m and back. I didn’t have to mentally control each leg, running was more on my fingers – before I could not run at all
- After running or having faster heartbeat my vision is not foggy any more, but it still shakes, I can read letters before I couldn’t
- I can jump with both legs
- My balance improved for 50 % (when standing I can be very still)
Next day I felt realy tired and my legs hurt. I have to take smaller steps.
Big differences in sleep on better, vivid dreams, easier to rise out of bed, urin is more dense and it seems that there is less water inside, warm legs all the time, little more energy.
IBT Update (Following 2 WEEKS) I.T. Tracking date: 01.31.2010
A lot of energy, easy to rise out of bed, no running nose even if i go somewhere in the night, once or twice emptying bladder at night, doing power exercises (push ups, room bicycle...), less stiffness,
I can sleep even on left side of body but not on back any more.
Every time when I go to bad I lay on my back for some time and always tears are running from my eyes (in past I had dry eyes).
IBT Update (4 months after beginning IBT: 04.29.2010
Wishing to go to bed every day, because I feel great when the body comes to IB position. My wife sleeps so for 3 months and she didn’t feel any mayor difference. I have a lot of energy and strength. Better body position when walking. Stiffness in legs is decreasing last 2 months. My spirit is high.Other improvements are the same as after 2nd week. Maybe I my bladder is emptying more tham before and my erection is better.
IBT Update (6 months after beginning IBT: 06.28.2010
I was seeping flat on my holidays for 6 nights and everything went bad again. Thirsty all the time in night, urinating several times through night, walking slowly…
So I decided to use several blankets to raise the bed and I managed.
After the first night things started to improve. So all the symptoms I am writing about had disappeared.
So I decided never to sleep flat any more.
2 months after the CCSVI procedure I did not noticed many improvements.
Thanks to IBT – those improvements are constant.
You should continue to experience more positive changes over the following months and experience a reversal of your symptoms gradually. This may be uncomfortable and even painful at times as nerve signals begin to reach the brain again.
