A new study from Stanford University School of Medicine adds an important piece to the CFS puzzle — a possible physical diagnosis for CFS. The study showed that a particular combination of three brain scans revealed changes in the "white matter" of the brain. This reflects changes in the nerves carrying information, predominantly focused in the right brain arcuate fasciculus, which connects the frontal and temporal lobes (a connection especially important in speech and word recognition).

Famous for producing adrenaline—the hormone that triggers the fight-or-flight response—the two adrenal glands sit atop your kidneys. The outer section (the adrenal cortex) produces glucocorticoids (e.g., cortisol—as in the medication Cortef), hormones that help regulate your blood sugar, your immune system, your sex organs, and your response to stress. It also makes mineral corticoids, which help maintain blood pressure and volume. The inner section (the adrenal medulla) kicks out adrenaline, which readies you for sudden stress.
