ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    That's (sadly) interesting Boule de feu - recalling the encephalo part of ME in my severe early days - brain MRI scans showing "high spots" though presumably "tools" for analysing the spinal fluid from my lumbar puncture were not up to any definite conclusion. I knew then that the (whatever) should have been found at that time.

    That is interesting, Boule de fue. Thanks for posting. I need to look up some more info to really understand this disease.

    Thanks Boule de feu :)

    This is very interesting, Note They havent found a causasion for these tummors. This kind of disease reminds me of the Adrenal type tummors as well and cause autonomic problems as well. I have noted in those type tummors no causasion for those type of tummors either.

    So it sounds like these tummors trigger an Auto immune effect too.... Wow very interesting indeed.

    I will have to check my doctors' file but I'm pretty sure that they had found something on my ovaries. That was a while ago. I wonder how it contributes to my health problems.

    Yes Boule de feu that would be a great idea to look into. Also these type tummors would be great tissue samples to give to "The Virus Hunter" Dr. Ian Lipkin and him doing a deep DNA sequencing of these type tummors to see what may be causasion of them. :)
