I'm new to the board but was diagnosed with Fibromyaglis a year and a half ago after twenty years of other diagnoses. I also was just diagnosed with MS. Here's my question? Does anyone know anything about what Dr. Kent Holtorf wrote in his article on this site dated 02-21-2003 about increased viscosity of blood in FM patients? The last time I had blood drawn at the neuro's office, both the nurse and I noticed how very thick, sluggish and dark brown it was. It didn't even look like blood. Any info? Thanks, KristinLEE By Kent Holtorf, M.D.
