    hi meryl,

    If stilnox helped cfs/me brain injuries, i should be a genius, lol.
    But its interesting how it helps. I have heard of cfs/me people recovering after surgery and being put under, so maybe certain anaesthetics can help reset the brain, maybe.
    It is a good sleep med but after a few years it stopped working so changed to a close relative imovane/zopiclone for sleep.

    cheers!!!

    LOL heapsreal. I guess I just liked the story, and how the family and his partner never gave up on looking for something that might help, even when the doctors & the social workers had given up hope.

    I do think the whole brain injury thing is relevant to us (maybe on a different scale). How can Neuroimmune disease be prevented? Just what is reversible damage? What is irreversible? How can we protect our brain from further damage if it's irreversible? What is the future of stem-cells? What part does the environment play - toxins? EMF? What part genetics? Can we help our children if we understand susceptibilty?

    Stilnox got a very bad rap after it was implicated in Heath Ledgers death.
