Numerous research papers have shown immune abnormalities in ME. Combined with:
See also: Study demonstrates that 95% of ME/CFS Patients have Anticardiolipin Antibodies, suggesting that ME/CFS may be an autoimmune condition
See also: Prof Behan on BBC ALBA: electron microscopy shows abnormal mitochondria in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, and we have known this since the 1980s
See also: The main characteristic of ME is an abnormally delayed muscle recovery after doing trivial things, if you don't have that, you don't have ME
See also: Oncologist Professor Mella: Rituximab treatment suggests that ME/CFS is an autoimmune disease
See also: Marked recovery of CFS symptoms during methotrexate treatment
See also: Altered functional B cell subset populations in patients with ME/CFS compared to healthy controls
See also: Professor Simon Wessely: A man has got to know his limitations and my limitations are immunology and ME/CFS
See also: The delayed responses starting from 2–7 months after Rituximab treatment, in spite of rapid B-cell depletion, suggests that CFS is an autoimmune disease and may be consistent with the gradual elimination of autoantibodies preceding clinical responses.

and Combined with my Lactic acid ME muscle symptoms
Research suggests that Antibodies from abnormal lymphocytes are blocking the aerobic energy production in muscle and brain cells in ME.
Is this what causes ME ?
