    I don't, but my girlfriend, who has been diagnosed with CFS has an ESR reading of 20, which is quite high (though not excessive). All her other blood work, including CK, ANA, RA, etc was normal.

    Have any of you had this result, and do you know if it's associated with chronic viral infection such as HHV-6 or mycoplasma? Desperate to get her on the right track here, and if it's abx that she needs, I aim to get them for her.

    Thanks!
