    An interesting Medscape report of confirmation of autonomic dysfunction in Gulf War Illness

    http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/775087



    The research was published here :

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23407784


    Why of interest to us?

    Two recent studies have objectively confirmed similar peripheral neuropathies in fibromyalgia :

    Many Fibromyalgia Patients Have Small-Fiber Polyneuropathy
    Anne Louise Oaklander, MD, PhD,
    Reported in Medscape and the press

    Similarly, two recent studies have confirmed a similar (to GWI) pattern of autonomic dysregulation in ME/CFS :

    Symptoms of autonomic dysfunction in chronic fatigue
    syndrome

    Time to test ME/CFS patients objectively for peripheral neuropathy as well?
    SOC, Emootje and Enid like this.

    Thanks Marco - brilliant. Thirteen years with ME and right from the beginning Hooper et al pointing out "the brain, not the mind" to the psyche claptrap brigade. How good it is (sadly) to see the real pathologies being found.....identified that is.
