Macrophagic Myofasciitis (MMF)

The disease is characterized by microscopic lesions found in muscle biopsies that show infiltration of muscle tissue by PAS-positive macrophages. It is most often associated with the pathological persistence of aluminium hydroxide used in vaccines. Clinical symptoms include widespread muscle pain, joint pain, muscle weakness, fatigue, fever, and muscle tenderness among other symptoms. A diagnosis can only be identified with an open muscle biopsy of the vaccinated muscle.

"The condition manifests by diffuse myalgias and chronic fatigue, forming a syndrome that meets both Center for Disease Control and Oxford criteria for the so-called chronic fatigue syndrome in about half of patients." -PubMed
