Study points to possible trigger of chronic fatigue symptoms, offering hope of new therapies

A study by University of Florida Health researchers published recently in the Journal of Pain Research provides a possible explanation for that atypical exhaustion, supporting a hypothesis that the bodies of those with chronic fatigue inappropriately magnify minute muscle byproducts caused by exertion.

"People with chronic fatigue are essentially sensing muscle metabolites while they are not doing anything, and they're not supposed to be," said Roland Staud, M.D., a professor of rheumatology and clinical immunology in the UF College of Medicine and the study's lead author. "Generally speaking, when we're at rest, we don't feel our muscles."
