Hi everyone, I saw my GP after 7 months and, afterwards, she sent me a letter saying, "I was shocked at your continued decline and felt a panic to be able to offer some hope or guidance... I did not get to do an exam or form a good sense of what lab testing would be useful at this time. I do think that given the decline you have experienced, both are indicated." I want to take advantage of her willingness to look at repeating tests and/or doing new "out of the box" tests. Can you please tell me the top 10 tests you would ask for? I don't have an ME specialist and don't have the means to travel to one (although I hope to somehow make it to Dr. Kogelnik, Dr. Chia or Dr. Peterson). In the months after I got sick (Nov, 2011), I had all the typical tests done, but haven't repeated very many and you talk about things on this forum I have never heard of. My thoughts are: VO2 Max (although it would be a 1-day stress test done by somebody who doesn't know about ME) tilt table test (I definitely have dysautonomia issues ~ I am dizzy, pass out, low BP, high HR, blood pooling etc ~ but I might pass the TT test because, if I don't move, I can control my HR while standing. My HR skyrockets when I move my arms) any Mycoplasma test any HHV test ACTH, LH, HGH insulin like growth factor testosterone RNase L Panel Immunoglobulin Cytokine profile Natural killer cell Complete metabolic panel Lactic acid folate DHEA sulphate Heavy metals Amino Acid IgG (?) Neuropsychological Testing I also had a Western Blot Lyme's test done, but don't trust it. Is there another test I should do (I've read about a Lyme's culture test)? As always, thank you so much for your help!! It means the world to me to have expert advice from people who understand this illness.
