Study shows why exercise magnifies exhaustion for ME/CFS patients

A recent study by the University of Florida has found that the neural pathways that transmit feelings of pain to the brain may do their job too well in ME/CFS patients, causing the exhaustion experienced by many after even the most minor of tasks. It also has found proof that muscles and other peripheral tissues contribute to the experience of fatigue.

The study focussed on the role of muscle metabolites, demonstrating that the neural pathways are activated when a person exercises their muscles, causing the metabolites to be released. Researchers found that the pathways seemed to be more sensitive in ME/CFS patients than in healthy controls.
