    NO is supposed to reduce pain sensitivity, which is (in simplistic terms) why it is higher in those with low back pain.
    CFS is associated with a Th2 immune response and one of the consequences of Th2 cytokines is the inhibition of NO synthesis. I know there have been papers hypothesising both high or low NO as part of the pathology of CFS, but I agree with the findings of this paper that absolute expression of NO is not a central factor.

    However there may be downstream factors, eg: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9824439 (the NK Cells were not responding to NO activation)
