    .............just not when lack of sleep is caused by ME-induced insomnia and the dysfunctional immune system appears to kill anything at 50 paces. I guess the above refers to mere..............'normals'......not the more highly evolved ME patient community. :D :)

    I was thinking about possible causation/early stages. Perhaps lack of sleep could allow an infection to become more deep-seated and thus lead to ME.

    Some pwME do think that they get frequent infections, but I think some of these are mistaking PEM for infection. I did for years.
