Vagus Nerve Infection in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

The researcher says that existing literature on neuropathic pain demonstrates how such an infection could activate certain glial cells (the brain's immune system) which then, as part of the immune response, bombard the vagus nerve with proinflammatory cytokines and other things that can cause neurons (brain cells) to become hyperactive. This response, he says, could lead to exaggerated and prolonged immune-system activity, which is believed to cause many of the symptoms of ME/CFS.
