Having read Prof Hoopers writings about the breathing problems he mentions that lung tissue in autopsy of people who had/died from ME related complications appears to be damaged, and that over all lung capacity is lower. I couldnt get anymore information than that though ? I thought it was related to the general fatigue of the bodies muscles, for examples, i get acute trouble breathing with i get an acute onset of debilitating fatigue, and i assumed this was because all my muscles were in a state of fatigue, including the ones i use to breathe. I also thought this was the reason ME patients feel like they cannot swallow, another symptom i get when in a crash/relapse state. Does anyone know anymore of this ? Thanks.
