Garth Nicolson, Ph.D., recommends a series of tests important in charting the proper course of treatment for his CFS and FM patients. To determine the presence of mycoplasma infections, a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test is crucial because of its being "very sensitive and highly specific." Sensitivity is required to detect mycoplasma presence since these microorganisms hide in the tissues and organs and are not as evident in the blood stream. Dr. Nicolson also suggests PCR tests to detect Chlamydia, Lyme disease, HHV-6, and cytomegalovirus as these infections are also commonly found in CFS and FM patients. Tests to spot various coagulation problems are also encouraged. To receive accurate results for most of this lab work, patients should be off all antibiotics and immune-enhancing products for at least four weeks prior to testing. (For more information on testing see "Important Tests for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia Patients", www.prohealth.com/library/showarticle.cfm?ID=3683.)
