Neuroinflammation in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Direct Evidence at Last

 
 

New research provides evidence of neuroinflammation in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS,) thus providing support for the alternative name myalgic encephalomyelitis.

In this small study, PET scans of the brains revealed inflammation in multiple areas of the brain... cognitive impairment was linked to inflammation in the amygdala, thalamus, and midbrain. Pain was linked to cingulate cortex inflammation, and depression to hippocampus inflammation.
