    Cytokines, Bugs and NK Cells: The Neuroinflammatory Series Continues

    We hear alot that ME/CFS is a neuroimmune disorder - but not alot about what that means.

    In this blog Marco lays out the immune side of the neuroimmune connection and brings up some interesting questions. Is ME/CFS a form of 'sickness behavior'? Are cytokines causing your mental fatigue? What stressors (infection, stress, exercise???) could have kindled the neuroinflammatory cascade he believes is present?

    Find out more about the immune side of the neuroimmune connection in ME/CFS as Marco begins to wind up his neuroinflammatory series
