XMRV testing anyone?!

Has anyone been tested for XMRV? I been reading more and more about it lately in
articles, and I have known there is a hereditary influence with the
fibro/cfs/autoimmune because my Mom also has, BUT I read an article which has
also linked fm/cfs AND prostate cancer to the XMRV virus. My Dad had prostate cancer.

I am wondering if I should get tested for the XMRV. Not sure which doc would

I swear, sometimes I start feeling like a doctor, all the medical stuff I read
and try to digest and interpret! Anyone else?!?
