That's (sadly) interesting Boule de feu - recalling the encephalo part of ME in my severe early days - brain MRI scans showing "high spots" though presumably "tools" for analysing the spinal fluid from my lumbar puncture were not up to any definite conclusion. I knew then that the (whatever) should have been found at that time.

Thanks Boule de feu :)

This is very interesting, Note They havent found a causasion for these tummors. This kind of disease reminds me of the Adrenal type tummors as well and cause autonomic problems as well. I have noted in those type tummors no causasion for those type of tummors either.

So it sounds like these tummors trigger an Auto immune effect too.... Wow very interesting indeed.

I will have to check my doctors' file but I'm pretty sure that they had found something on my ovaries. That was a while ago. I wonder how it contributes to my health problems.

Yes Boule de feu that would be a great idea to look into. Also these type tummors would be great tissue samples to give to "The Virus Hunter" Dr. Ian Lipkin and him doing a deep DNA sequencing of these type tummors to see what may be causasion of them. :)
