I just got some of my test results back from my specialist and also had the follow-up appointment.
I had extensive EBV testing, with the results coming back extremely high. Anything over 22 was considered "high" and my number was 476! The specialist said it was extremely high, not normal for just an exposure to mono. All of my symptoms started with a horrible case of mono over 12 years ago.
My vasopression was also not even detectable, which influences the fluid levels in the body. This could be the cause of my POTS. The EBV can actually influence the vasopression.
I need to retest for a specific Natural Killer Cells test.
I got some new information, which will hopefully lead to new treatment... I'll try to keep you posted!
Hi all, I bought a ninja blender a month ago and started on a smoothie regimen which I’ve actually noticed big difference cognitively. I’m thinking clearer and definitely see improvement communicating with others. Unfortunately it has not improved my fatigue levels or malaise. So I was wondering if anybody else is blending out there and if you have any good recipes and which improvements...
This is interesting. Identifying these markers and creating a blood test to determine CFS would be huge!! https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/mysterious-chronic-fatigue-syndrome-finally-gets-cause-180964290/
