I very much need to see a doctor who actually know something about this disease. I have had very little testing except to check for top expected diseases (MS, Lupus, and the like). I need: a thorough cardiac evaluation testing for pathogens (Lyme, EBV, HHV, enterovirus, etc. ... and XMRV after the science is more settled) differential diagnosis between ME and some other (non-top-expected) disease(s) assessment for dysautonomia neurological assessment and sorting out what symptoms are from migraine and which from ME assessment for comparatively mild OI (as compared to many of you) discussion for whether a sleep study might help discussion for whether a gut study might help preferably, a brain hypoperfusion study it would be kind of nice to have someone read my MRI's to look for ME lesions, but I'm not sure this qualifies as a need I'd prefer to stay in the far West because of proximity, but am not entirely ruling out going to Klimas, Komaroff, Lerner, or someone far away like that, maybe even KDM. I'm leaning towards Peterson partly because it's cheap to fly to Reno and partly because I've just liked what I've read about him, but I want to consider all my options. Bateman is in Utah? and Chia in California? Who else is in the West? And what does everyone recommend? Who would be likely to be of most help? Is there going to be a big difference in expense between the different doctors? Expense might be a problem but if I have to wait a year, it will be a bigger problem then.
