None who suffer with chronic often misunderstood conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, or ME; enjoy the journey known as pain, exhaustion, or brain fog. More-soever is the unknown underlying causes of the conditions where medical providers become stumped while attempting to provide treatments.
As each Fighter recognizes they’re own body systems ability simply by its overall response to stress, physical or mental exertion, cognitive or executive functioning decline; how is it that our Immune Systems or cellular structures determine how we react?
Through over 22 years as a CFS sufferer, diagnosed with Fibromyalgia several years ago, the questions posed relative to Immune Dysfunction have more times than not, gone unanswered. Some of the questions pondered relate to the malfunctioning of the immune system, how that impacts the Autonomic Nervous System, Central Nervous System and Blood Brain Barrier Thresholds. For example, how many Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients have positive EBV titers? How many more of us have some sort of Autoimmune Disorder such as Psoriasis, Rheumatoid or Psoriatic Arthritis? There has to be some sort of connection at the base of what triggered or promoted CFS/Fibro/Me involvement.
There are now many researchers making connections that previously were not even on the radar! Here is one fine example how current studies are making progress to uncover what needs to be recognized in the field to better assist patients facing these conditions. Every bit of research that connects the dots outside of the box, is making steps towards providing individual sufferers with hope for healing.
