Peering Beneath the Turbulent Waters of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Gene Expression Profiling Provides Hope
According to Craig Maupin of the CFIDS Report, “Due to the uncertainty about [the pathology of] Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), it is very difficult to get a clear picture of where to place research efforts. But that uncertainty could change, as a new technology – like gene expression profiling, can help to pinpoint the physiological differences between CFS and healthy patients.”
Position Paper on Trigger Point Injections [Fibromyalgia and Myofascial Pain News]
Dr. Reuben S. Ingber writes, “To date, very little is known about trigger point injections – how effective are the treatments, how many injections, which muscle(s) to inject, what corrective maneuvers need to be made after a trigger point injection. The reason for the gap in our knowledge is that very little funding has gone into the research of these treatments.” Read Dr. Ingber’s analysis of the available information on trigger point injections for musculoskeletal pain.
The Fruits of Unbelief and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Professor Campbell Murdoch, M.D., Ph.D, writes, “On a recent trip to Malaysia, I was asked to suggest some topics for talks to interested doctors in Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur. Near the top of the list was Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) in view of our recent book. The reply was quickly received that the topic was unacceptable because ‘we don’t believe in that over here.’” Read more about Dr. Murdoch’s experience with CFS.
