What is the buspirone test

For the last 18mths I've had a variety of tests for different conditions but with no luck.

My Endo said I may now have cfs. So I went to see a different specialist who has now put me forward for a muscle weakness test and today I've received a letter for a buspirone test. As he said this a test they do for cfs. But I forgot to ask what does it entail and what is it for.

Has anyone had this test and could shed any light on things.

Many thanks xxx

Never heard of it as I thought there were no tests for CFS but found this link: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/893...


Hello Welshiegirl,

I have not heard of a buspirone test. Have you tried searching for the test on the internet? Sorry I cannot help further. Let us know how you get on with this test and whether you receive a diagnosis. Take care,

Hi Welshiegirl ... from what's on internet, sounds like a blood test to see reaction to what they've introduced into your blood that day?

I've a very bad reaction to the 5HT's, and I think they're looking for that response? As though how you're feeling and what you've told them isn't enough? :(

When do you have to go? As has been suggested, have you the facility to search the Internet and find out a bit more about this weird test? Thinking of you! B xx
