ME & Coronavirus / Covid-19
People with neurological conditions are considered to be at higher risk from catching Covid-19, although it is uncertain exactly how the virus might affect people with ME.
ME specialists find that:
- it is likely to cause a relapse, or significant exacerbation of symptoms
- the cells protecting you against viruses are less functional because they are overworked
- there are other possible reasons
- Dysregulated provision of oxidisable substrates to the mitochondria in ME/CFS lymphoblasts
- Sex-based differences in plasma autoantibodies to CNS proteins in Gulf War veterans versus healthy & symptomatic controls
- Sick of the sick role: narratives of what ‘recovery’ means to people with CFS/ME
- Plasma proteomics publication shows disrupted cell-to-cell signaling in ME/CFS
- Open‐label study with the monoamine stabilizer (‐)‐OSU6162 [drug] in ME/CFS
