I went to my GP two months ago about herpes infections and getting tested and having antivirals. She consulted an ME doctor, at which point i knew i was doomed. Anyway, the ME doctor said she didnt think it was worth even trying. But to my doctors credit, she agreed to run a few new tests, for some herpes viruses, and some bacterial stuff, and a lymes disease test - she asked why i wanted it, saying that alot of people seem to what a lymes test nowadays, worried about it, and i explained that i had reason to think it might be important, becuase it is so often misdiagnosed as ME. She didnt seem to know. Anyway, she said i could have it. so thats good. i expect its the cheaper, less reliable test, but still... She also will rerun all the tests ive had before as they are easy for her to order. I said, whats the point, ive been tested and dont have them (some like Hep) why not save 1000 on all these tests, and instead run the one or two other tests that i havent had yet. But basically she seemed to be saying that some are easy to order because they are routine, whereas rarer ones are harder to justify because they are less common, even though they may be more valuable. Its illogical. Anyway, lets hope that the new tests i do get are useful, and if not at least thats more stuff ruled out. I plan to go the breakspear after this and have the rarer test done.
