There's been plenty of research indicating that having pets is good for your health. I never really noticed any particular benefits to having cats, though that may have had more to do with my cats. They've been fairly indifferent to my presence and we've shared a live-and-let-live...

    IMMUNE GLOBULIN (HUMAN) (IGG) IV WARNINGS
    This medication may cause serious (rarely fatal) kidney problems.
    This medication may cause serious problems from blood clots (e.g., pulmonary embolism, stroke, heart attack)
    this product may contain substances that could cause infections because it is made from human blood. HIV
    may cause a serious inflammation of the brain (aseptic meningitis syndrome) several hours to 2 days after your treatment.
    Lung problems may rarely occur 1 to 6 hours after your treatment. You will be monitored closely for any lung problems after your treatment.
    pulmonary edema from fluid overload, due to the high colloid oncotic pressure of IVIG
    allergic/anaphylactic reactions; for example, anaphylactic shock, especially in IgA deficient patients, who by definition can still produce IgG antibodies (IgA deficient patients are more likely to produce IgG against the IVIG administration than normal patients).
    damage such as hepatitis caused directly by antibodies contained in the pooled IVIG.
    acute renal failure[9]
    venous thrombosis
    aseptic meningitis

    As far as Glutamine goes, which could help your GI symptoms, you can buy that right online. "GlutImmune" by Well Wisdom is a brand I've used, but there are lots of brands. There is a product called "Glutagenics" by Metagenics which has positive reviews by people, Metagenics is a great company but their supplements are rather expensive. You can google them to find more info.

    Probably, just make sure to buy from a reputable company. I know a lot of people use VitaminShoppe. Iherb dot com is also a great vitamin site which sells lots of brands. And people write reviews of the products on there, so you can tell which products are working well for most people, and which ones aren't, which is helpful.

    Yeah and do you know the adverse effects of Tylenol? Just ask your physician about the IGG, CFS physician that is.

    What triggered mine?... hmm genetics than the virus

    Tylenol is dangerous, and especially overdosing on it. I agree. Thank you for suggesting IGG, you are the first to do so and I believe knowledge is power. With those neg effects I mentioned it does also state "This medication is used to strengthen the body's natural defense system (immune system) to lower the risk of infection in persons with a weakened immune system" so you are right on the money with that one. I will see what Enlander or another cfs specialist has to say about it. benefits might outweigh the risks?. thanks

    No SaveMe, they never really found the cause. I had (another) Dobutomine Stress Echo about 3 weeks ago, then saw the Cardiologist about 10 days ago. The consultation proved very unsatisfactory & I felt I wasn't being assessed properly, so complained to my GP & he has referred me back to my old Cardiologist I saw in early 2007 (who diagnosed SVT at that time). My appmnt with him is not until end April.

    I'm wondering if my BP meds have stopped working as I am getting intermittent high spikes in my BP. I have a good BP machine.

    As I get dizzy when I get up suddenly & have started getthing a few low BP readings, I am wondering if it's sort of like POTS.
