Hi everyone. I've had M.E since I was 6. I'm 23 now. I'm thinking of getting these tests done soon as I have recurring infections every other week. Apart from this list do you think it's worth getting tested for Coxsackie (and if so which tests?)

Here are the tests I'm getting done which are available here. Please let me know your input. Screenshot_2018-07-18-15-35-11.png

I'm not familiar with the lab, but if they do those tests properly, they should identify if you have these viruses as long as they're not hiding in your tissues.

Do you have to pay for the tests? And the price in this list, which currency is it?

If you have so often infections, it would be important to see an immunologist to rule out immundefects (for example IgG subclasses). Immunodeficiencies can also be the cause of chronic fatigue.

Yes, but only if it's an acute (first time) infection.

Years later, the combination of test results informs the diagnosis. Too many of us have had chronic or reactivated infections missed because some narrow minded doctor only looks for IgM.
