    BMJ Journals: Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases: Autonomic and inflammatory changes in FM and ME/CFS and the contribution to signs and symptoms



    Background Dysautonomia describes a group of conditions associated with a malfunction of the autonomic nervous system. Symptoms of dysautonomia and inflammation have been described in Fibromyalgia (FM) and Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME)/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) [1–4]. Symptoms include increased disabling fatigue, pain, dizziness and digestive problems…

    Conclusion includes: Preliminary findings suggest that dysautonomia and induced inflammation significantly impacts on pain, fatigue, and autonomic function in FM and ME/CFS.

    Dysautonomia, which is the latin word for disturbed autonomic function, shows that the autonomic function is disturbed ? haha, well jokes aside you should all watch this video. Im a firm believer thats the main problem here.

    Does malfunction have a different meaning than dysfunction or it's just the author's preference? Never seen the word malfunction in medical terminology.
