EBV neuroinflammation

Could EBV be linked to the neuroinflammation in ME/CFS?

Forty years ago, the Epstein-Barr virus was the hot topic in ME/CFS. Nobody was talking about neuroinflammation back then.

Now, though, the idea that neuroninflammation may be causing everything from increased pain sensitivity to fatigue to possibly even the movement problems in ME/CFS has moved to center stage.

Can the circle be completed, though? Is it possible that that “original gangster” in ME/CFS – EBV – could be causing the neuroinflammation? Some recent research suggests perhaps.
