Many people suspect that inflammation plays a major role in both ME/CFS and fibromyalgia yet standard tests are usually negative. However, a new inflammation test being developed at Stanford by a researcher (who’s also doing work on ME/CFS) could change that.
This more sophisticated test indicates that immune systems that are “wired and tired”; i.e. exhausted – as ME/CFS patient’s systems appear to be – may be the most inflammatory of all. Check out that plus some exciting work that aims to uncover a potential mitochondrial explanation for the immune exhaustion present in a Simmaron Research Foundation sponsored blog:
