If you think ME/CFS and FM are behind the eight ball at the NIH, then check out postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), a common comorbidity. The NIH doesn’t even measure POTS funding but then how could it? POTS doesn’t even have a designated funding stream there.
That hasn’t stopped POTS researchers, though, from making huge strides in understanding the disease – strides that appear likely to end in the recognition that POTS is an autoimmune disease.
Check out how a small band of researchers and a young but dynamic support organization are making a major difference in a largely neglected disease – a difference which could have implications for ME/CFS and perhaps even fibromyalgia. Find out more in a Simmaron Research Foundation sponsored blog:
