    In case it might be relevant, I have to take massive amounts of calcium or my teeth would decay like crazy and I wouldn't be able to sleep.
    Lots of other CFS patients have written about having dental problems. Hmmm.
    So far I don't have osteoporosis, but it could be because of the huge amount of calcium I take. (around 2300 mg a day)

    Dr judy wants bone marrow

    Fern,

    Dr Judy has said in an e-mail to us at xmrvweb.me.uk that she would like to test bone marrow. If you have an odd sample lying in your freezer, why don't you e-mail her with your offering.? She has found that a marrow sample tested positive. She is (if she is a good swimmer because all our planes are grounded) supposed to be coming over to Scotland in the next day or so, but will still be picking up e-mails.

    Warmest regards,

    C.G.
