I was recently refered to the Pacific Fatigue Lab by Doctor Montoya. An article on their work can be found in the 2006 Research publication by the CFIDS Chronicle. At this time the lab is doing ongoing research and takeing a few patients refered by Dr. Montoy or Dr. Lapp. I was pleased and surprised to find that all the work they have done with me has been done either by email or telephone. No long and costly trips. What I have learned from them is really nothing that I didn't know but it has given me the tangible answers to why my body is behaving as it does. I now know by testing my heartrate that when I stand up from my chair my rate is as high as someones who has just run a sprint-when I climb our stairs to the bedroom it is at the same rate as a runner who has been running for ten minutes. Being able to look at that monitor and see the numbers as I try to live my life and realize the difference between what I am doing and what my body thinks I'm doing is evidence that something is really wrong. I've always know it but now I can prove it.
