Many posts lately on the possibility of many conditions actually being ME.
In my education and research w lots of input from www.lymenet.com my conclusion is that many of these cases are actually Lyme.
There is a great poster and researcher on that site who was misdiagnosed with CFS and FM for about 15 years who when tested correctly was finally told she had Lyme. She now feels that about 90% of those diagnosed with FM and CFS actually have Lyme.
Lyme is a "great imitator" of many other diseases, and the ME being described here a lot recently also imitates many many diseases. Recent research is showing that Lyme comes in stages, and that MS, RA, ALS, polymyalgia rheumatica and more are stages of Lymes.
Accurate testing is done only thru Bowen Lab and Igenex Lab. Tests that many health prfessionals use are often very inaccurate and do not give reliable information. If one tests positive, it is suggested that a LLMD - Lyme Literate MD be found. You can access some info on that at the site mentioned above - how to find a LLMD.
How is ME tested for in England ? What exact tests are used by which labs. Would really like to know this info, please.
I would greatly appreciate input here on your thoughts / feelings / insights and more.
Thanks in advance
