I read somewhere, so I don't have the link to back it up, that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Autism have some related features. The doctor was saying
that Autism and CFS could be cured by the same mechanism, which I didn't understand. The part I did get was that it was probably a combination of
genetic factors and viral, bacterial or environmental triggers that initiated the illnesses. If the trigger happened before a certain age you got
Autism, if it happened after this age then your brain had developed enough to perform fairly normally but you got the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue
Syndrome. I really didn't understand it all, so I am afraid I am not making much sense. Maybe a google of Autism and CFS would help.
Just thought it was an interesting angle.
