    this was for Dr. Montoya's new study. more blood was drawn than for previous blood tests i've had, and down i went. this is day #4 and i'm still waaaay out of it.

    anyone else experience this? i think (but i didn't watch) 10 vials of blood were drawn. i've been wasted ever since. totally down and out.

    (Dr. Montoya is testing two groups of people for around 60 pathogens, including the retrovirus XMRV--one group of healthy controls, and the other group diagnosed cfids patients of his)

    if anyone has anything to share about this, i'd love to hear- thanks, sascha

    I have never crashed from getting blood test but have never had that many vials taken.

    Have you talked to the doctor if this is a common occurrence for people with our DD?

    I have, however, crashed from the trip to get my blood tested.

    Hopefully there will be something found that can be treated and you get some improvement in your health.

    When do you get the results?

    Take care.

    we don't get results of blood tests for 6 months to one year. it's a while to wait. sascha
