So are you saying that that Uzma Qureshi's cure from her probable ME/CFS illness through TMJ treatment was just imagined? To me it would not seem inconceivable that, in some small subset of patients with ME/CFS or ME/CFS-like conditions, their illness arises from or is exacerbated by some physical dysfunctions of the nerves. It should be noted that higher levels of substance P are found in TMJ dysfunction patients. Substance P is released into the cerebrospinal fluid when the trigeminal nerve (which runs through the lower jaw) is stimulated. Substance P is also found raised in the cerebrospinal fluid of ﬁbromyalgia patients, and may be driving the symptoms of ﬁbromyalgia. Substance P stimulates pain receptors in the body. Now since temporomandibular joint disorder is a comorbid condition found in ﬁbromyalgia, it is quite feasible that the substance P released by the TMJ dysfunction may be exacerbating the ﬁbromyalgia, and thus TMJ treatment may lead to some remission from ﬁbromyalgia.
