And if so did you test positive?
hoping for responses thanks
No, I have not been tested.....I have done quite a bit of research on it though, and think that it is possibly a trigger in a subset of those with these disorders. I believe I come from a differing subset. I hope to find more research on it though, as it's very interesting.
What is it?
Yes, I know 7 people who have tested positive.
If you want to leave your email address we cant take this
offlist. Trini on this list is positive as well.
I have heard that anyone who has CFS will also test positive for ciguatera. I can see how it might be useful as a diagnostic tool, but at this point, there is no proven treatment for it. Also, nobody knows if this is actual ciguatera poisoning, or if our bodies are manufacturing a neurotoxin that is practically identical to ciguatera. At any rate, I don't plan to have the test until there is a treatment. Researchers think there may be a treatment available sometime this year.
