Hi, I've been considering for a couple months now to pass a panel to detect infections that isn't covered by my insurance. It tests a lot of the usual things seen in CFS : CMV, mycoplasma, candida, HHV-6, EBV etc... The doctor assistant told me it is using PCR method. I don't know much about that. Is it good to detect active infections? (Am already waiting for an HHV-6 igm and igg there was done at the hospital) What should I look for if I intend to be tested for infections? Any good labs? This test is 550$ out of my pocket and I don't want to waste money on it, even my doctor kind of told me to let go and wait for more science regarding causal link of CFS before paying that much. He's the most knowledgeable doctor I can see, he's aware of XMRV research at least, there certainly is no big guns here in Quebec... He's done some testing in the past, that cost me a lot of money and essentially gave nothing except that I know that I have none existent EFA levels, low hormones and low vit D, all typical of CFS, nothing new here.... An awful way to spend 1000$ :worried: Thx!
