    When I listened to that interview I had no idea that N=3 for that 25 day study; my impression was that it was ME/CFS and Fibro patients, not patients who had both conditions; and I thought it was all CFS symptoms not just pain.

    The abstract seems to say something different: that leptin levels are associated with pain in both women with fibro and healthy post menopausal women.

    This isn't my page. I'm not sure about what Cohen has. From just little blurbs it sounds like chronic fatigue, lectin sensitivity etc but he's managing it well. I'm not sure if the distinction of CFS and CF matters much considering how many subtypes of CFS there are.

    Chronic fatigue can often be shorthand for ME/CFS. It's what we called it until we came to PR.
