Wow, all this time and I did not know that either! Thanks @Hip!
And @Jesse2233 The doctor was very angry that his enterovirus theories were not taken seriously and actually told me that he refused to view any records that I had brought from OMI (where I am a regular patient) even though the EV tests were done by the same lab that he used, "ARUP" along w/Quest and/or Lab Corp.
I also got the feeling that he did not believe that MCAS existed (one of my diagnoses which is now in remission from IVIG but was still very acute at that time).
have you heard the expression "if you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail"? I feel that way about doctors and their playbook.... they decide on something (eg enteroviruses cause cfs; mcas isn't real) and then that's that... I've been to several doctors who insist I have lyme, even though I've always tested negative... they keep saying, okay, you tested negative, but take another test from this other company... and on, and on.. because lyme is their thing
