    I just read the following. I have difficulty remembering the abnormalities that have been found in ME/CFS so I wasn't particularly on the look out for specific abnormalities that are similar to ME/CFS. But I was making notes for myself and thought I might as well share them. Other people may have other observations (but I'm not saying it's the most important paper for people with ME/CFS to read).

    (Not important) Some quotes from the Introduction

    I would think it would be interesting to see the effects of exercise training in ME/CFS.
    For example, can it increase inflammation and is this what causes relapses when relapses occur from exercise.

    (We're a long way from anything like that in ME/CFS)

    Interesting. Differences over the hormonal cycle can make activity management really confusing.

    Not surprising that these sorts of complexities are explored in work unrelated to CFS. Thanks for looking through it for us.
