    I have decided to have some tests done to rule out (or find out) some possibilites that I have been reading about on this board. So many symtoms I see ring a bell-at one time or another!

    I would really appreciate any suggestions of what tests to ask for!!!! It will be hard to convince my Dr to dig that deep so I am going to write them all down!!

    Then I can resume fighting this damn disease......................

    Thank you in advance for any suggestions!!!

    Hi, allipop.

    It would be helpful to know something about your illness in order to better be able to suggest particular tests.

    For example, what was your health status like early in your life?
    What sorts of things occurred in the few months or weeks before your illness began?
    What was the onset of your illness like, in terms of suddenness and initial symptoms?
    How long have you been ill?
    What symptoms do you have now?

    Best regards,

    Hi Alli,
    How/why were you diagnosed in the first place? Most responsible Dr's should run certain lab work to rule out other possibilities. Are you asking about additional testing?

    What have you been tested for up to this point? That would help in guiding you.
