Lupus, CFIDS and Connective tissue disease

Has anyone ever had lab specimen drawn for CFIDS and if so what test do they include. Had a new rheumy appt today. (had 14 tubes of blood drawn to run 16 tests which included one called (CFIDS). I know some of the tests are done to determined the clotting of my blood. I had what my GP called a TIA a couple of weeks ago that has really had me feeling bad.
Has anyone with Lupus ever had all 3 of these at the same time?

Re: Lupus, CFIDS and Connective tissue disease

I have had CFIDS for almost 11 years. There's no bloodtest for CFIDS to see if you have it. The only way to see if you have CFIDS is to rule out everything else so you do bloodwork for other things.

Do you have CFIDS or are they trying to rule it out?
