    Jenny,

    I'd love to know where you have had this test performed. Wondering if there are other places that offer it besides by Dr. P in Washington DC.

    No supplements listed. But simple information.

    It would be nice to get a study published comparing results from a random selection of CFS patients (by the criteria he thinks best) to be compared with inactive controls, rather than have him just present results from particular patients. These sorts of problems are definitely important for a subsection of CFS patients, but I'm still not clear on how many, or to what an extent.

    (edit: The above sounds rather unenthusiastic - even though for personal reasons I'm actually rather grateful to Dr.Pocinki, it seems that I often just sound terse!)

    Thanks Astro, I didn't see these. However, these are treatments for OI. He doesn't mention this in his piece so I'm not sure how OI relates to what he says about autonomic dysfunction.

    I had it done at the Breakspear Hospital, Hemel Hempstead, UK.
