Avatar f tn I've been following the XMRV news closely. At present, there are two commercial labs offering XMRV testing. The Whittemore Petersen Institute who published the study in Science has released a press release endorsing VIP Dx Laboratories for XMRV testing. The other laboratory is Cooperative Diagnostics.
Avatar f tn I'm thinking that insurance may not cover the testing at this pont. VIP lab in Reno, NV (formerly Red Labs, USA) has several test kits for, or related to, this virus. One is a PCR test for the XMRV virus itself. For more information, google, "VIP Labs" for their website. I'm not sure when we the treatment options will be available... but I hope very soon ! This is the new research institute that made the discovery:
Avatar f tn You should only be tested by a laboratory that specializes in such testing, such as VIP Laboratories of Reno, NV, or a research group that knows how to test for this virus. Once tested and assuming that the test is positive, what does this mean in terms of possible treatment? At the moment there is little evidence that the XMRV virus actually causes the most obvious signs and symptoms of FMS.
Avatar f tn one on the Whittemore Peterson Institute and the other on the International CFS/ME conference that was held in March (Reno, NV). Annette Whittemore-Peterson started this institute because her daughter has CFS and I'm sure she was frustrated with the lack of resources and care for her daughter. This institute is researching CFS, fibro, autism and what they refer to as "atypical MS".
Avatar m tn The doc there pegged it as a full blown stroke and flew me to Reno (same symptoms as before). The original Neuro I saw in Oct was not in Reno in Feb so I just saw the ER doc. After the third day, I asked why they hadn't run any tests on me and why hadn't I seen a neurologist yet. The ER doc told me that they thought it was just a migraine. Huh?
Avatar f tn Good question, but I'm sorry to say that I don't have any answers for you. RedLabsUSA (now VIP labs) in Reno, NV does have a research test (spinal fluid) that apparently can diagnose both fibromyalgia and CFIDS / M.E. You might also want to consider contacting the Whittemore Peterson Institute in Nevada... they've been researching not only CFS / M.E., but something called 'atypical MS'.
Avatar n tn Getting medications to breech the blood brain barrier is challenging for Doctors. Obviously they know best about pain medications so you need to be honest and open with them including letting them know how much of each you are consuming. Anxiety can be a problem for post surgical patients and your statement regarding your cat should concern you personally. As a owner of numerous cats over the years your cat seems unusual.
Avatar f tn Five months after the implant I elected to have the swine flu vaccination which resulted in a numb feeling and tingling in the extremities along with diarrhea and dizziness that subsided after a few days. Since then the tingling has combined with the aching in the lower extremities and progressed upward to include the thighs. Exercise makes all of the symptoms worse, as I experience severe aching and muscle twitching after any kind of physical activity.
