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.

    The ability to touch your nose with your tongue - known as Gorlin's sign in medical parlance - can be an indicator of connective tissue disease such as EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Dyndrome).

    The symptom overlap with ME/cfs is estimated at about 90 percent.

    A first degree raltive is a parent sibling or child


    sometimes this ability is due to a missing frenulum - the tissue under the tongue in the centre rear
