    First of all, the nurse who did the test also has FMS! And since it took several hours, we talked a LOT. I was actually able to tell her some things she didn't know.

    The test was long and boring, and I did experience side effects to the arginine in the IV: really BAD headache, feeling of swelling in back of throat, numbness/tingling in teeth, mouth and face, and flushing, and nausea! UGH. I had to sign a release/consent regarding possible side effects before the test.

    I'm glad that's finally over with. I see the doc in 4 weeks and will get results at that time. Until then, I guess I will just carry on.
