    I am in a fog most of the time. As you can tell when I try and write.

    I do not understand that poll. Could someone please explain it to me.
    He has one poll that was a red line for a cfs person that was housebound and severe it was a 100%. he or she tested positive.

    Then on another poll it had two red lines and they tested positive but they went to 50%.

    Someone explain that poll to me, must of you know the name of corts website cfs something.

    Maybe this is what your telling me and I still do not understand. So is the poll for what test they are getting or what test they have gotten?

    I am getting the infectous and latent test at vip.

    I am ignorant I guess

    The polls are where Cort is letting people put thier results. One is for the PCR(active) and the other for Culture(latent). I would imagine not everyone is getting both tests run.

    I think I have that right, heck I'm foggy too today.

    The results are what is posted now, not how many have ordered the test.

    So, by the results posted over there, one person has tested positive on the PCR, and if only one person voted, that means the result wil show 100 percent.
    The culture poll shows two persons testing positive. One has severe ME, the other has moderate to severe ME. Two people voted on different results, so that makes the percentage 50 percent.

    I sure hope I'm making sense here.
