    My 'like' should not be taken as agreement, or even understanding, of the post content, merely as appreciation for the effort involved in finding and posting it here.

    I had a closer look at the references at the bottom. This item appears to have been written by a Spanish medical student who has ME and a medical graduate.
    They have written this longer article explaining their theories as a PDF available here The original article is in Spanish, translated here into English:

    There is a thread about it introduced by the author on PR here.

    It looks like rather vague speculation to me.
    There seems to be an assumption that PWME have an immunodeficiency. That idea has been around for a while but there seems to be little evidence for it.
    A number of studies indicate that T cells are normal in ME using the sorts of tests mentioned in the document.

    Ha Ha Ha ! We’re on the same boat, Wonko. I thought it looked interesting so I posted it. I’ve never read any article being so concrete about groups and testing to find diagnosis.
