"The study found SARS-CoV-2 infection, regardless of disease severity, can lead to neuroinflammation and small bleeds which may account for many of the neurological symptoms reported by patients."

That's quite interesting. I wonder whether ME researchers have looked for this sort of thing in ME brains. Human autopsies, since how can you be sure that a lab monkey actually has ME?

Are the research tools really not there to scan the tiny blood vessels (and measure flow rate) in the living brain for abnormalities, or abnormalities among glial cells?

We know #LongCOVID causes #pain & now this research starts to explain why. …researchers found that infection left a gene expression signature in the dorsal root ganglia that remained even after the virus cleared. #TreatLongCovid w/ ILF13 anti-cancer drug"

A new animal study has provided important insights into how COVID-19 SARS-CoV-2—the virus responsible for COVID-19—can lead to long-term pain. The new findings also point to a potential therapy for COVID-related pain.
