Fibro/CFS Connections with Immune Response

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.

  1. I’m now not certain where you’re getting your info, but good topic.
    I needs to spend some time finding out more or figuring out more.
    Thanks for wonderful information I was looking for this information for my mission.

  2. FibroFighterz adapt to the elusiveness of their condition, where all topic’s are relevant.

    Questioning the questions- while making comparisons with recent scientific research or studies, consumer/patient blogs, and then comparing such information with medical journals; puts the first things first.

    Current updates on breakthroughs in Fibro/Cfs/Me and other Immune related topics can be found @ Health Rising{dot}org. as well as, Simmaron Research{dot}com. Awareness is now in the advocacy spotlight which has been secondary for quite some time….

    Whats important for any mission is reliable sources, a thirst for knowledge, and a desire to find answers towards the overall healing journey that ultimately reveals that together we all can make a difference!

  3. In opening the dialogue and posing questions regarding Immune system dysfunction relative to CFS/Fibro, the platform of collaborative research, networking the cumulative analysis provides a wider scope of insight for learning the possible underlying culprit behind these conditions.

    Think about the role of T-cell involvement, the role of Autoimmune Response and or Dis-regulation, then determine whether or not the Blood and cellular formation, RNA/DNA Genetic defect or disease, are the overlooked factors. Where the HPA, and Blood Brain Barrier thresholds are all interconnected, and individuals with CFS/ME CANNOT donate Blood…what specifically does that suggest? Why then is there a lack of “blood testing” to both diagnose and treat these conditions?

    Variability of manifestation of disease/syndrome symptoms accordingly to each individual patient with these overlapping, elusive conditions complicates the complex. What specific underlying conditions do all these patients have in common? How many have poor immunity? How many have inflammation, psoriatic or other arthritic conditions? How many have had mono, EBV, Herpes, Shingles, or other systemic or metabolic infections? Does that indicate a formulation of viral or bacterial involvement, or is there an Infectious disease component as well?
