No difference in natural IGM levels between severe ME patients & Long Covid patients. 85% similarity between severe ME patients & all Long Covid patients & 81% similarity between all ME patients & all Long Covid patients. Natural IGM differentiates patients from controls...
Severe ME/CFS and severe and mild long covid look similar in deficiency of natural IgM.
In all SARS2 patients the deficiency is so marked, that it is safer to bet on SARS2 being causative. But it could be herpes, Prusty says, since why do we see the same pattern in ME/CFS?
IgM response to fibronectin: Severe ME/CFS has significantly lower amounts of it, people who have had it for a long time.
In long Covid, IgG and IgM response to fibronectin is low in all groups. Also in all infected! But less.
At this point, I have very little hope. I, like so many others, have severe ME, & every symptom linked with it. Doctors continue to tell me I don’t have anything that will kill me. That’s what I was told yesterday by a cardiologist. I’m couch/bed bound. 🤷♀️🤦♀️
I am so grateful you are talking about this & that doctors and scientists are looking into this. I have severe ME. The question is how will this get to doctors who don’t even know what ME is. How will it translate to actual care for patients? We’re still left untreated.
Absolutely. I'm really concerned that repeat Cvd infections will drive a big upswing in the number of ppl with moderate to severe ME - and most medics will have no idea how to treat them bc of decades of research & patient neglect.
Another project by Katharine Seton - autoimmunity in severe ME - reactivity to their own gut microbes?
1. severe ME have lower levels of antibodies to foreign microbes
2. have increased antibody reactivity to specific gut bacteria
