The Kindling hypothesis attempts to explain the hypersensitivities to pain, sensory input, and the immune system responses found in patients with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.[1] Kindling "occurs when an organism is exposed repeatedly to an initially sub-threshold stimulus resulting in hypersensitivity and spontaneous seizure-like activity."
