Neurological & AutoImmune

This page is just beginning and will feature a host of articles, videos and research on the relationship between pain, neurological disorders and autoimmune conditions; web sites dedicated to the each will also be listed. Since new research points to an autoimmune aspect to CRPS / RSD this will be highlighted, as will Myalgic Encephalopathy (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) or ME/CFS. Hopefully the intersection between these and other disorders will lead to innovative ideas in neuroplastic treatment applications.
