Actually, the millions of people world-wide who suffer with CFS/ME know this all to well and it's about time the medical and scientific world caught on to this fact as well. Thanks to this latest research, it looks like they may be doing just that!
This article, published this week on Science Alert, introduces some amazing Australian research. Among other things, it's the first research to show ME/CFS is linked to faulty cell receptors in immune cells and it offers great hope for future treatment and tests to diagnose ME/CFS.
The article discusses many things that we (people with ME/CFS) already knew, like the effectiveness of current treatments (practically zero).
For example: The article states:
Don Staines, who is one of the researchers and
co-director of Griffith University's National Centre
for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases states
in the article, ""The new research also suggests that
[prescribing] exercise is just unbelievably bad as it
can put the body under further stress."
More Fantastic News!!!
I only wish I'd knew this when I was first diagnosed. I would have saved my body a lot of permanent damage I caused to it by adding exercise into my routine.
Without further delay, here is the article!
