    hi- i've been trying to find a post where someone listed all the different blood tests the FFc runs. i can't seem to find it, i searched back a lot of posts. does anyone have the list??
    i don't feel i have it in me to travel all the way to the FFc, and i wanted to see what tests were run, and if maybe my current doc could do them, if they were not done yet.
    thanks for the help

    FFC Blood Tests 07/02/06 10:35 AM

    Hi place,
    This was a great idea to post. My tests were a little bit different.

    The testing is done by Quest Labs. It is very important to note that all of us with CFIDS/FM should be tested for Lyme Disease and co-infections by Igenex labs, not Quest.

    Usually the doctor will first order an Elisa test, which is not reliable, especially for late stage lyme. So even if tested with this and it's negative, it's critical to ask for an Igenex Western Blot, even if you have never had a known tick bite. My lyme disease was not picked up until I got the Igenex.

    Good luck to all!
