    Thanks Bob. That was quite interesting and covered a lot of ground - some good, some less so from my perspective.

    The standount (and new) point for me was that Younger stated that he has also found that the relationship between leptin levels and bad days also stands for fibromylagia. That is in ME/CFS higher leptin correlates with higher fatigue and in fibro with higher pain levels. So the leptin connection isn't specific for fatigue although as he also states leptin per se isn't the problem (as it is still at physiological levels) but that it may enhance the underlying problem.

    He also said the fibro study should be out within a week.

    I was fascinated to read that Dr Younger started out studying hypnosis.

    For some reason I was under the impression that he was studying ME, but really from the interview it seems like he is mostly studying pain and fatigue.

    Edit to add: Silly me. I see that "Pain" and "Fatigue" are right there in the name of his lab. Doh!
