    Hi all,

    I have been looking at treatments that might work for me. I had MONO/Glandular Fever very bad when i was younger, so a link to EPV seems a good bet to me.
    I also have immune system dysfunciton, because i dont catch any colds or anything like that, so i want to ask my GP for referal to an Immunologist who will run some tests, for EBV and other things and then reccomend a treatment - perhaps Valtrex, if i am found to have an EBV problem, or whatever treatment is best.

    But i dont just want to see any immunologist, i want to see one who is familiar with ME/CFS and who is likely to be worth seeing.

    I cant afford to go private - not really - so i am hopeing that someone can reccomend an NHS consultant. I live in Wiltshire, so it would be ideal if it was fairly close, within 100 miles...but i will go to London, or further afield if the consultant is good.

    Thanks
    Joel

    p.s. i see my GP this coming Tuesday.

    Hi Joel

    I've recently been seeing Dr Chee at the Royal Free Hospital Immunology Dept, London.
