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.

    Again, what is causing the low blood flow to the brain? Why has my father remained completely clear-minded at 80, while his 82-year old brother is completely taken over by Alzheimers. His mind is almost completely gone. My father still writes articles for scholarly journals. Could it all be to hypoperfusion? And what does it mean for those of us who believe some dynamic, possibly weak tissue illness (EDS, and others) causes ME/CFS? Why has the connection been researched?
