    I have always been impressed with their research. I may say more after I have read the paper. However the pdf is paywalled.

    well, I will note their first limitation to the study they cited:

    so they are measuring at only one single time point with no exercise challenge, etc.

    currently, I think it be difficult to find an "experimental challenge or treatment intervention known to produce symptom improvement".

    Anyone ever read this? I'm afraid it's a bit over my ability to absorb right now.
