New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    My dear friend has recently been diagnosed with Fibro, PTSD, connective tissue disorder and has a history of Lyme, which was treated with 3 weeks of doxy. She also has a terrible sleep disorder involving seizures. I am doing everything I can to help her, but she is being seen by so many doctors. Does anyone have any advice for her on Dr. Levine/Endlander-type doc in SF or the East Bay? I told her about Work Well for when she files for disability, but I would like her seen by someone who gets it, instead of all of these specialists who don't see the big picture. Also, recs on SS disability attorneys are also appreciated!

    Dr Andy Kogelnick is at the Open Medicine Institute, Mountain View. 650-962-4553

    I don't know whether they actually accept patients or only do research. They might be able to refer you/her. Good luck!
