at this time, affect my disability negatively? I just got my disability approved earlier this month, based on my functional (or lack of) assessment. I have yet to see a rheumy- probably the specialist of choice here in my area, in 2 weeks time. I recieved my testing kit from VIP DX this week and would like to be tested, as I want to know. Simple reason, I am curious. I am aware of the pitfall of the test, but a positive test would help me out getting tested for co-infections etc... I was told that perhaps a negative test could put a dent on my disability- and would like to have opinions. we all know that a negative test at this time is not a definitive negative. I certainly know that I have something- and am on a continuous decline since this summer. I so want to know!
