    I just came across this today. What's your view?

    I think OMF was looking into an autoimmune response causing / worsening ME, but only for a subset of patients.

    Some of their early statements have very limited single success eg evidence of neuroinflammation in fibromyalgia - citing a single small only

    The central sensitization hypothesis is based on very flimpsy evidence. The more I look into it the less there is.

    I always find it a bit dubious to hear of overlapping symptoms between FM and CFS - just because many people have both doesn't make the a common origin involved - loads of illnesses have fatigue, brain fog, pain and insomnia. I notice that are using the newer FM criteria without the tender points so they will be finding a much larger group have CFS.
