ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    I just got lab results based on urine and spit testing from a couple weeks ago.

    Cortisol
    TIME - LEVEL (NORMAL RANGE)
    6:30AM - 6.1 (7.0-10.0) LOW
    10:30AM - 2.9 (3.0-6.0) LOW
    4:35PM - 2.9 (2.0-4.0)
    9:00PM - 1.9 (0-1.5) HIGH

    SUBSTANCE - LEVEL (NORMAL RANGE)
    DHEA - 324.0 (33.0-496.1)
    Epinephrine - 7.7 (7-12)
    Norpepinephrine - 29.5 (30-45) LOW
    Dopamine - 171.5 (115-175)
    Serotonin - 133.1 (120-185)
    Glycine - 1,570.0 (455-980) HIGH
    GABA - 6.8 (4.7-7.0)
    Glutamate - 43.3 (15-32) HIGH
    PEA - 35.3 (30-70)
    Histamine - 18.6 (14-24)
    Creatinine - 125.2 (28.0-259.0)

    The doc said it looks like my inhibitory stuff isn't working properly, so he wants to bring those up to get into balance with the excitory stuff, then look at whether they both need to be brought down together. He's got me taking Taurine, 5-hydroxtryptophan, L-theanine, N-acetylcysteine, Alpha-Lipoic acid, and some co-factors for a week, then seeing what else is necessary.
