I want to get the test done and over with, but I am still confused about which test to get and when the best time to get the test would be. Didn't one researcher state that he or she found the virus in an old blood sample of a CFS patient, but when he took a current sample, it was not there. I can't remember whether it was the antibodies to the virus that disappeared or the virus was no longer found in the blood. Does the antibody test have a higher false negative rate? Would it be better to get the culture, the antibody test or both? Should I wait a few months before I get the antibody test until they have all the kinks worked out? What would you do?
