    Needless to say they haven't cracked it but some interesting theories overlapping those around ME/CFS :

    The Pathophysiology of Fatigue in Parkinson's Disease and its Pragmatic Management

    [excerpt - my para breaks]

    There also seems to be quite a few studies using drug interventions (with few significant benefits unfortunately).

    This reminds me of the Nilotinib drug trial, their study reported a fair amount of analysis that would do well combined with this paper.
    That said i've also noticed a fair number of similarities with Parkinson's disease (and some clear differences of course).
    I would be interested the analysis in this paper being repeated on some of the patients on the current Nilotinib drug trial.
