Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Thanks @justy I don't know what the differences between IgA and IgG are really. What was your IL8? no matter if you haven't the results to hand I know its a pain, they'realways where you aren't!!

    The top ones look to be interleukins and other measures of systemic inflammation. They are often produced by macrophages. Elevations would indicate inflammation but I don't know much more than that. Some are pretty highly elevated and that goes along with your symptoms.

    I'm not sure if the positive IgG means a past infection or a current one.

    Will you be able to go over the results by phone or would you have to make a trip?

    My IL8 was 2394 I have tried reading up on IL8, but it has made no difference to my general understanding i'm afraid.
