    Why Women are More Prone to Long Covid (and ME/CFS)

    Good piece in the Guardian looking at various theories. Very applicable to ME, as well. One of the things it says is "Some scientists have already begun to describe long Covid as an oestrogen-associated autoimmune disease..." which is very interesting and not something I've seen mentioned...

    Survey suggests post-viral fatigue form of long COVID might be the most common subtype

    Long-COVID and CFS/ME are not MCAS

    The inducement for this post is the growing publicity of the theory that Long-COVID is just a simple disease in disguise, such as MCAS, and that there is a quick solution around the corner. For MCAS, a low histamine diet would be a simple fix to all the problems. This is the subtext of the...

    Severe COVID-19: A serotonine-mediated disease

    I found this research from Dr. Farid Jalali, and it finally explains why severe COVID-19 is so severe despite antivirals and immune suppressants. It's all driven by serotonin from destroyed platelets. I'm mentioning this because it can also explain the damage to the Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB)...

    Neuroinflammation in Long Covid?

    Here's a new, fascinating paper that detected inflammatory cells in the eye in Long Covid patients. Since the optic nerve at the back of the eye is part of the nervous system, and the optic nerve is a major route for drainage of brain lymph, inflammatory cells in the eye is sometimes a marker...
