UK Physician Believes He's Found Proof of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Doctor Takes Stigma Out of 'Yuppie Flu'

By Deborah Haile

Dr. Raymond Perrin believes he has proof that chronic fatigue syndrome - once dubbed yuppie flu - has a physical cause. For years sufferers of CFS - which includes ME - have lived under the stigma of being diagnosed with a condition that many dismissed as being in the mind. But Manchester osteopath Dr. Perrin believes he has proved that the debilitating syndrome is the physical result of the way the body deals with toxins. He believes a picture of varicose lymphatic vessels taken during a research project at Salford University shows for the first time the "backflow" of lymphatic drainage that he believes is the cause of toxin build-up. And it is this accumulation of toxins in the central nervous system, which Dr. Perrin believes is the cause of conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome and ME. Valves Dr. Perrin, who runs clinics in Prestwich, central Manchester and London, said: "Normally these vessels are the size of the thinnest pencil line and you can't usually see them without a magnifying glass, but the fact they are swollen like this is significant. There is a backflow against the valves. "Very rarely can you see these, but with every person I have seen in the last 16 years with chronic fatigue syndrome you can feel them under the surface. It means this person has had ME for a number of years." Until now experts have believed that valves in the lymphatic vessels only allowed the flow of fluids in one direction. But Dr. Perrin says these varicose lymphatic vessels - which resemble varicose veins but are the same colour of the skin instead of a bluish colour - are the proof that the backflow exists, when vessels are damaged, allowing toxins to concentrate in the central nervous system. He revealed the picture at a seminar at Salford University. He hopes to publish it in a respected medical journal later in the year. Margaret Cannon, who had to give up work because of the condition, said: "After about three months of Raymond's treatment my concentration was restored and the symptoms improved greatly." © Copyright 2005 Manchester Evening News.

i find this artical very interresting due to the fact that, i was told in september 2001 that i was the first patient in my doctors office in Derby/ Derbyshire, England that i had Fibromyalgia. i made office history so i was told by the doctor i was seeing.i started with it after having a total Hysterectomy, wich i later found out i did not need.i started with pins and needles from head to feet,and now have constant pain, and feal tired constantly. in the past 3 years i started to have a gland problem on the left side of my neck. the gland near my left ear became so swollen it produced a discharge constantly, the tast was foul and became worse at night. as i lay down i could feel it draining down my throat constantly, also causeing pain from the level of my vioce box to my left ear, the pain in my left ear was like some one driving a sharp knife down my ear cannal. i also have pain up the left side of my head above my ear, it also hurts more at night when i feel the gland in my neck drain.i went to see a ear, nose and throat doctor hear in Rochester n.y state, she was useless.i went for a sylivary gland by opsie and all the doctor asked them to test for was Sjogren's Syndrome it was negative, becuse she, the doctor did not do as i asked and test for more that 1 thing i suffered in excrusiating pain for nothing other than having a savere reaction to the stitches.so the part of the gland that was removed was waisted,so i got no further forward to find out why i still have foul tasting discharge from my gland in my neck or the reason why it seams to go into a vain in my neck and then backs up the vain through the side of my ear to viens above my ear and also causes servier pain along my ear canal, after the removal of the gland in my neck, i had very exstream pain in my ear behind my ear drum. if any one can help me find answers to this problem even if you are a doctor or a resurcher please contact me. at liz_et1@hotmail.com
