I am new to the boards and have CFS and MCS for the past 21 years. I've become interested in getting extensive testing for viruses, bacteria, hormone levels, etc. as the research has progressed a lot since I was first diagnosed. Has anybody been to Carol Ann Ryser, MD in Kansas City, Missouri. She has a clinic there where she does extensive testing and uses transer factors, IVs and growth hormone replacement, amongst other treatments. I am thinking about travelling from Los Angeles to Kansas City to have the initial consultation and blood tests done, and I'd like to know if anybody has any experience or knows of anybody who has been to her clinic before I spend the $1,000+ to go there. P.S. If anybody knows where I can get $1,000+ please let me know as I'm broke and unable to work.
