    I just watched this 3-minute news segment on CBS News last night. Quite fascinating in and of itself, but I couldn't help but wonder if this new (and simple) device (collar) might help some of the brain circulation and cognitive issues for pwME/CFS.

    Here's a LINK to the entire transcript...
    .......................................................

    Bailes replicated that with a collar for humans that gently presses the vein like a necktie, reducing blood flow out of the brain. That creates a backflow, about a teaspoon of extra blood, making a tighter fit in the skull.

    This might assist with OI. It would probably need years of testing especially on safety issues with OI.
