    Hi,

    I don't have access to a qualified doc where I am in Canada and would like to test my NK cells function and maybe check if I have active viruses (CMV, EBV etc..) . I thought I was improving lately but now I feel horrible and though I resisted the idea of taking antivirals meds, I would consider taking them if my results indicate I could benefit from it.

    I can have a nurse coming at home to take the blood test if I can receive a test kit by mail.

    Not sure if it's in the right section, sorry about that.

    Thx and have a good day!

    Thx, though I'm not sure I can have blood tests done with them internationally from what I saw.

    You're right; I just asked direct labs. Sorry.

    Do you not have a doctor, or do you have a doctor who won't run the tests you want?

    I don't have a cfs doctor and I could ask my gp to order tests but here in Quebec, Canada I can't seem to have access to a lab that would perform tests specific for cfs patients. In fact, maybe I could ask them but I don't even know what tests to ask for tbh.

    I might end up trying antivirals without testing, though I'd really prefer to know where I stand before.

    I listed the tests that were done on me this August 2011 by a specialist for ME/CFS. There are more but these where the primary ones. If I hear from you with your email, I can forward the actual lab form filled in just as guidance. I hope it helps. The tests ran about $1500 to $2000, so be prepared. It was the best thing I ever did.
