I know where you are coming from. I am also waiting for some more news from the BWG, before putting effort and money in getting tested for XMRV and such. It would be nice to know if I got this virus, but nothing is really proven at the moment and I wouldn't be able to get a treatment from regular doctors. I have considered visiting De Meirleir as well, but I have been reading a lot of patient stories and I am not sure what to think of him. On some points he seems to be very far ahead of the game... on other points I am not so sure. And I detest having to pay for everything. I am Dutch of course I do feel XMRV is somehow the silver bullet to this disease (playing a big factor), but we'll see. Yeah, I know the recommended daily amount of Vitamin D in the Netherlands is outdated. But my symptoms got worse when I took larger amounts of Vitamin D, so I am just taking 100% of the recommended daily amount at the moment and I feel that is helping. I had a minor Vitamin D deficiency by the way, discovered by the internist I was seeing. I got supplements and got retested: I was no longer deficient. (now I am always wondering how accurate these tests are, because I know some tests prove nothing, like some B12 tests). I quit taking Fish Oil, but I see it popping up a lot on the forum lately. I guess I will start taking it again to see if it makes a difference. My biggest problem was that I had a closet full of supplements and it was getting ridiculous: I was taking like 10 - 15 different supplements and vitamins. About 6 months ago, I kicked out most of the supplements and starting experimenting with 1 supplement at a time to see what helped. I am aware you need to take combinations of vitamins some time, I am taking some Zinq, Calcium, etc to support the other supplements.
