Scientists find link between brain imbalance and chronic fatigue syndrome
Scientists describe small study as long overdue deep dive into biology of conditionScientists have uncovered compelling evidence for abnormalities in the brain and immune systems of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known asmyalgic encephalomyelitis (ME).The findings, in one of the most rigorous investigations to date, begin to illuminate the biological basis for the illness that can cause disabling fatigue. The study is the first to demonstrate a link between imbalances in brain activity and feelings of fatigue, and suggests that these changes could be triggered by abnormalities in the immune system.Conti...
