Just a thought; would it help to put people with very severe ME in a medically induced coma? ME can often very slowly get better when the patient is careful with it's energy. But people with very severe ME cannot really do that properly because they seem to be overexerting themself with just very basic daily tasks they cannot really skip. Like eating, having someone in the room with them, etc. Maybe just being awake is already overexertion Being in a induced coma reduces energy demands. Would it help to put them in a coma for a few months so they can get complete rest? Has this ever been tried?
