Today I'm writing this in Ameds clinic. I'm back for another check-up. During these 4 years my condition has slowly become better and better. I can walk over one km (if I’m not tired). I also walk relatively fast and normal.

Hello,

I've been asked to tell you about my personal experince with Ameds. In June 2010 on the second day of the clinics opening I became the third or fourth patient with them.

In 1976, at the age of twenty I was diagnosed with MS. Over those years, I have had countless relapses. In 2004 my symptoms became much more severe.  At this time my relapses were 4 to 5 times a year, so much so i could hardly walk more than 100m with walking  sticks. I also had severe spasticity on my legs and back. This also caused major problems to my lower back, which was very painful. Also affected was my balance, this caused me to fall over constantly.

In June 2010, I was diagnosed with CCSVI. Both jugular veins were narrowed, the left one was worse. My left jugular vein was ballooned by doctor Zarebinski. Immediately after the procedure, I felt instant relief in the form of both feet going back to normal after being dark lilac and cold .

During the obligatory 6 hours lying after the procedure the spasticity in my back subsided considerably .  After 3 weeks I had to decrease my dose by half of my muscle relaxant medicines, because my legs were uncontrolable.  I walked better and faster and the balance was much better. Normal activities like dressing was much easier.

In October 2010 I came back for a check-up. I  had my right leg a little clumpsy again. The examination showed a slight restenosis in the processed jugular. Doctor Zarebinski ballooned it more and this time ballooned also the narrowing of the right jugular. After 3 weeks I "had to"  quit my muscle relaxants totally.

Today I'm writing this in Ameds clinic. I'm back for another check-up. During these 4 years my condition has slowly become  better and better. I can walk over one km (if I’m not tired). I also walk relatively fast and normal.

The latest relaps I´ve had in May 2010, a month before the first procedure. Not even one after that.

The consultation shows good Flowings throughout my veins and the MRI is just like 4years ago, zero new plaques.

And the best of all is quality of life.  I’m able to go on spending my summer boating on the beautiful archipelago of the Gulf of Finland.

Thank you all skilled and kind people in Ameds :-)

Best regards
Heidi Murtola-Tamminen
