XMRV Q&A

 Does this latest information prove once and for all that ME/CFS is not a psychological or psychosomatic illness as described by those who don't understand the disease?

Absolutely! Actually, there are thousands of research articles showing the very real biological problems that ME/CFS patient's experience such as low NK cell count and function, MRI and SPEC scan changes, and repeated chronic infections, to mention just a few. Only the most stubborn and misinformed individuals refuse to believe that this disease is real and serious. The process of placing poorly understood illnesses into a psychological category is very similar to what happened in the early days of MS and epilepsy before the advent of technologies which proved the illnesses were "real." Unfortunately, many in the scientific and medical fields have not learned from their past mistakes.
