    I've got a question about this... if ME where related to inflammation in these dorsal root ganglion, would it be possible for a a spinal disc herniation to worsen the symptoms of the disease? thanks!

    Interesting question!

    I'm afraid I cannot go any further than to say it is a theoretical possibility

    I am not aware of any ME/CFS post mortems where disc herniation has been reported in addition to dorsal root ganglionitis

    My ME/CFS clearly worsened after suffering disk herniation, which after nerve conductivity studies proved to be severeley afecting my nerves downwards from the lessons. If you think about it, there's no way to tell what exactly was the damage I suffered at that area besides the herniated disc, other structures in the area could have been affected. Is there a way to study the condition of these root ganglions on a live person?

    I think that anything that activates the immune system, which includes physical cell damage, is likely to worsen CFS symptoms.

    I think exactly the same, my friend, ANYTHING that produces inflammation worsens ME/CFS. I have poor dental hygiene precisely because I found a little exhausting to wash my teeth properly... anybody has this problem? regarding the spinal issue, I was thinking about buying a device that stretches the spine, that might have some potential to improve the condition of damaged espinal disks , it is this one, sorry that it is in spanish, but in the middle of the video it is shown how it works: what do you thing about a device like this? could it be any good?
