International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

Can anyone condense the latest research that we know?

    So much science; feel overwhelmed! Can anyone help out with what has been discovered, as opposed to theory/hypothesis?

    I think there have been a few things learned about ME/CFS. Like there is often gut dysbiosis/dysfunction, immune system dysfunction, etc. Nobody has come up with anything but theories though as to how these and other things are all connected.

    I don't know if this helps but the 4 National Institute of Health collaboratives that just got ME/CFS grants for research are all focused on the gut, brain, immune system and metabolomics=(the scientific study of the set of metabolites present within an organism, cell, or tissue).
