    "A decisive infectious trigger may then lead to immunization against autoantigens involved in aerobic energy production and/or hormone receptors and ion channel proteins, producing postexertional malaise and ME/CFS, affecting both muscle and brain."

    I agree with the picture of the disease, but the auto-immunity theory is still not proven....:thumbdown:

    It sure fits my situation. I have autoimmunity now that I didn't have before ME/CFS. The entire article was a nice checklist of problems my doctor and I have been discussing.

    Thanks for posting!
