    This is an interesting paper. The authors do acknowledge possible issues with a placebo effect with the reported improvement.

    It would be good if people with long standing CFS had cerebrospinal fluid pressures measured. It's not something that has ever been suggested to me even though I have sometimes reported frequent headaches and a feeling of head pressure.

    @Andy, what did the letter say?

    My internet provider blocks Sci Hub unfortunately, so I've posted all that I know I'm afraid.

    Can't you just get around that by using different DNS servers? That works in Australia and is very easy to do.

    I think yet again this is a sub group, I also believe some of us have another cause for the leak.
    I got my pressure meassure and it was ok. But I could swear I have leaks. I get this bump, pressure like and a few days later I feel some liquid spilled. Burns like hell, kind of like head acid reflux. Then my bump goes down. I do not get the regular leak headaches. Sometimes picking or like 25 cent round pain, hard to explain but it is always localized. I do not leak very often (I do not get the salty liquid either on throat).
    But I think some imflamtion is causing the leak not the pressure per say.
