:welcome: to the forum Steve :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

The test isn't available here yet, if it's the one I think it is, that was mentioned a few months ago, it isn't widely available anywhere, and to buy it costs something like $700 upwards. I could be wrong on the price of course :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

How long have you been part of the FM Club or are you still going thru the dx~ing process??

Hi,

I remember it being mentioned a couple of weeks ago and yes FP it costs at the moment nearly 800 US dollars.
However, while reading the info on the website I found link to the article on the initial research, which reveals some very interesting findings.

http://www.biomedcentral.com/1472-6890/12/25- don't know whether it will work as a link but it was published in the Dec 12 issue of BMC Clinical Pathology. ;-)

Masonsbarms,
Sorry about that.

If you go to the OP link and look in the section on background, you can access the article from there.

I agree it would be beneficial to have a recognised blood test to confirm diagnosis but can't see it being licensed for use in UK anytime yet!

Interesting since they claim fibromyalgia, fibrositis, the chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyocitis are basically the same. If true perhaps there seems to be some serious progress in understanding these diagnosis.

These are the other threads but not much more there
