XMRV/ME and school?


Senior Member
North West, England, UK
Could I ask if anyone whom is XMRV+ with children, have you given this information to your childrens school?

I am awaiting to be tested, along with my wife (whom doesnt have ME as far as we know), basically because Dr. M suggested to me if were both positive, there is every chance our kids are. So I dont know what to tell our children's school teachers if we are positive.

Is this something that has already been discussed?
