I have cocci-meningitis since August of 2011. This is not about me.

Hold been told that VF beginnings in the lungs is a form
of pneumonia. The VF event in Fresno in December, one speaker said that up to 80 percent of diagnosed pneumonia cases in the VF belt MIGHT have actually been misdiagnosed and contain in all actuality some form of Valley fever.

I have an 88 year-old uncle was diagnosed with pneumonia Two years ago. He spent one week in the hospital. Since this diagnosis his oxygen level averages 88 so they prescribed oxygen for him.

The only VF symptom that I see he has is continuous fatigue. No itching, headaches, fever. weigh loss. brain fog etc etc.

Have not seen anywhere in which reduced oxygen level is a symptom is also VF. Also many 88 year olds suffer from constant fatigue.

Is this constant fatigue and the pneumonia give him reason to ask for a
blood test for Dr. Pappagianis lab to test for titer score?

Hi Dank,

If fatigue is his only symptom you could simply follow up with a physician at the next appointment and ask about the test to be thorough. The blood test should not be expensive or time consuming so it should not be a big deal to order it just to be safe.

All my best,
