Chronic fatigue syndrome and/or fibromyalgia as a variation of antiphospholipid antibody syndrome: an explanatory model and approach to laboratory diagnosis

Elevated fibrinogen & blood viscosity were most common in this population vs normal levels in controls. Lumbrokinase & Nattokinase have been shown to reduce fibrinogen & blood viscosity.

As a few in this group know, I was diagnosed with Antiphospholipid syndrome in Jan 22. It can be fatal.
