The Institute for Neuro Immune Medicine (“Institute”) is a premier research and treatment center for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and other related Neuro Immune Disorders. The term neuro-immune disease refers to a group of illnesses that are the result of acquired dysregulation of both the immune system and the nervous system, often resulting in lifelong disease and disability. Symptoms may include mild to severe cognitive impairment; disordered sleep; severe headache; swollen lymph nodes; sore throat; malaise; postural orthostatic tachycardia; painful nerves, joints and or muscles; abdominal pain; nausea; and unusual fatigue. These diseases most often follow an infectious or flu-like illness that does not fully resolve after standard treatment or over a typical course of time. Diseases such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV/AIDs), fibromyalgia, autism spectrum disorder, lyme disease and Gulf War Syndromes are some of the illnesses that are treated at the Institute.Click here to visit our page.
