Hi, guys.
I've gone from mild MECFS to severe over the last three years and have had MECFS for sixteen years.

I wanted to share my CBC and ESR results as I've heard that ESR results can have some sort of connection with MECFS. I'm confused about my results as they seem normal. I'm also taking 50 mg of hydroxyzine as well as 100 mg of gabapentin daily. Does this have any effect on it?

At the same, I'd love to ask how your levels were and how they were interpreted?
