    Interesting article but bcg was administered to teenagers in the uk up until 2005. I would expext that to affect numbers of people in the uk with fybromyalgia if bcg was effective.

    The site states FM/a test currently costs $936 but is covered by some insurance companies and Medicare. They are doing trials to see if the vaccine can treat.

    Yes I saw the site, but they doesn't explain which cytokines/chemokines are tested, and what are the specific findings for fibro....

    I wonder if Fibro patients and ME patients tests were compared as well...

    This vaccine was felt to be a risk factor for ME.
