I hear comments that those
CFS, CFIDS & 'gulf war syndrome'
wish they had
biomarkers to identify their 'illness'
medically. I believe they will have them, when the
fatigue is found and diagnosed.
They will probably
agree that although there are many varieties of things
that can come with these, the common denominator is the
debilitating fatigue that no rest helps.
I believe the answer
will lie somewhere in the immune system and the red
blood cells. In the early stages thge red blood cells
may be ragged and beat up; but soon they should be small
sized. There may be too many red blood cells that are
immature. So, what is the age, the size and the shape
of the red blood cells? And in early years of this
fatigue, is there trace blood in urine? What are the
membranes like? Is there fragility of the red blood
It is important to know
this anyway, because if there are too many immature red
blood cells, many other medical tests have to be
adjusted for that fact.
I do suspect a chemical
exposure that would cause such ... as prematurely
destroying the red blood cells, and leaving
them 'looking different."
I came close to seeing one
example of this; but for the most part, the
autoimmune hemolytic anemia
is not checked except in the very early or late stages
of it. It could be more common place than doctors think
