The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    I am curious about the pattern of infection among patients.
    The question relates to confirmed laboratory testing (Either IgG, IgM or PCR) of Epstein Barr Virus or Cytomegalovirus virus.

    Note, the last option should be negative to both EBV and CMV, not 'or'.
