    Dundee was where muscle research for children with "CFS" was done . Tymes promoted it, think it was funded by ME Research or Invest .

    Dundee has done a bit of oaedupaedi research in conjunction with TT.

    Perhaps moving into adults?

    Eta link. Will try and find muscle study

    Their main finding, however, has been that people with ME/CFS have high levels of reactive oxygen molecules, which can harm blood vessels and muscles.

    I am pretty sure in my case they are skyhigh during flares.
