Reading this article cheered me up! OK, I’m an optimist at heart and I’m ready to go there. But not only did this study receive attention, mainstream audiences heard about it. That means that the negative viewpoint of ME/CFS might start to change. And, the researchers found inflammation in brain nerve cells which could possibly have been triggered by a viral infection. Duh! For decades, many ME/CFS sufferers have said that they caught a flu that they never recovered from.
Of course, this study needs to be repeated and it will take time to gather more data. But for now, it’s exciting to think that we could be getting closer to not only understanding the underlying cause of ME/CFS but possibly a successful treatment. OK, I said I was an optimist.
