    The environmental doc (the closest we have here to a MECFS specialist) requested some routine tests before I see her in a few months, and the results were abnormal.My GP ordered a followup test for the abnormal stuff, as well as a skeletal xray (to rule out myeloma cancer) and an appt sometime with a haematologist.

    I'd like to go to the appt prepared (although my doc told me just to trust the haematologist) and am completely out of my league--I've got as far as immunoglobulin=antibody=immune problem, but that's about it.

    Does this mean anything to any of you? Thanks so much!

    Jan 21 test: Beta 2 globulin high (9 instead of 2-5 g/L)
    M1 protein high 7 g/L
    M2 protein high 1
    "Two discrete bands were detected in the gamma globulin region of the electrophoresis."

    Jan 29 test: IgG 7.5 (normal 7.2-16.9)
    IgA 9.75 high (normal 0.69-3.82)
    IgM 0.22 low (normal 0.63-2.77)

    "M-protein detected: IgA LAMBDA"
