Article in The Guardian, Monday 4 April.

Is chronic fatigue syndrome finally being taken seriously?

Interesting to note a possible autoimmune connection: “CFS is really an umbrella term for a whole variety of underlying illnesses – some psychological or due to anxiety-related exercise intolerance, but many others down to neurological impairment, energy-production impairment or even autoimmune dysfunction.”

Some patients have benefited from immunotherapy.  Also, “In some cases, something has damaged the mitochondria which provide energy for immune cells, brain cells and your muscle cells, and such patients can improve a lot from treatments such as a membrane lipid replacement.”
