    Dr. Peter Rowe and colleagues have published their hypothesis and model of neuromuscular strain in CFS in the journal, Frontiers in Physiology: http://bit.ly/15pHsuv

    Dr. Rowe is conducting a study to test this hypothesis under the Associa...tion's Research Institute Without Walls, as described here: http://bit.ly/2012-rowe He has also written a 2-part article about how his team uses manual therapy to help manage ME/CFS that's based on this hypothesis: http://bit.ly/manual-tx-pt-1 and http://bit.ly/manual-tx-pt2.

    You find some interesting stuff, Allyson!

    Just skimmed the third link there and recognise myself - I have upper thoracic spinal pain if things are going badly. I'll have to give these a proper read!

    Glad i could help Sasha and hope you find some useful answers.

    Since i stopped work I am no longer totally crashed out for 4 -5 days of every week recovering form one day's work so have time aplenty to browse the internet and am unable to do much else alas. But thank heavens for the internet!

    (Actually a lot of them come from sites and fb pages dealing with another related syndrome - mentioned in my signature below. It seems we have a lot of common symptoms.)
    And I really want to find a cure....

    Cheers

    Ally

    I am fairly convinced of this link having looked into it recently, in conjunction with my broader efforts to gain a greater understanding for the processes involved in ME/CFS. My working hypothesis is thus:

    Aetiology: ME/CFS is the descriptor applied to the symptomatological manifestation of advanced Neural Hyper-Sensitivity Syndrome (NHSS), typically arising among people with:
    • Neurodynamic restrictions e.g. dorsal defects, trauma, hypermobility, P53 inactivation
      • A Hyper-inflammatory predisposition e.g. allergies, sensitivities, asthma, eczema

    Allyson, what exactly is he researching? Has he found anything new? He didn't seem to mention a test of any kind, a hypothesis without proof or treatment isn't very useful. Not trying to rain on your parade or anything.
