Research On Brain Inflammation

Research On Brain Inflammation

I just discovered this video on brain inflammation by a researcher and he discovered that brains with ME/CFS has a higher temperature (hotter than a normal brain (that's not ok)) because of elevated activity due to inflammation which can't be cooled off by circulating blood. The brains have elevated levels of lactate (a secondary energy source) instead of oxygen and glucose and discusses why we feel sick, antisocial, isolated, cognitive issues, etc.

Yes I've read about the study that took place in Harvard college, the people with fibromyalgia have inflamed brains, we know that the brain controls most of the bodies actions and reactions, which is why we have all these many symptoms. Personally I understand why one minute my whole feels feverish and sweat poors out of my body then a half hour later I'm freezing and can't get warm. The good part of this study is that it gives credence to what we've been dealing with and the terrible pain. The scientists are already working on new drugs with this new information. Hopefully one day we'll have a cure and know what is causing this disease.

Every day I feel that my lactic acid levels feel high it’s a horrible feeling especially when your not a sportsperson lol
I thought I was out of my mind but this explains everything, but it’s not temporary I experience it every day. Don’t get me started on my muscle pain and nausea !!!
