More about Allergies
Many studies have reported that a majority of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) patients have allergies to foods, pollen, metals (such as nickel or mercury), or other substances. One theory is that allergens, like viral infections, may trigger a cascade of immune abnormalities leading to CFS. (Most allergic people, in any case, do not have CFS.)
Some research indicates that people
with both allergies and emotional disorders, such as anxiety or depression, may
be more vulnerable to the effects of the inflammatory response, a harmful
overreaction of the immune system that can cause fatigue, joint aches, and fever
as well as hormone and brain chemical disturbances.
Supporting this theory was a study in
which patients reported reduced CFS symptoms after they took a vitamin-like
supplement called NADH, which increases ATP levels.
