International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Wonder if the more active immune system at night is also at least partially responsible for sleep issues?

    That, maybe, and low cortisol. I'm sure there are many factors but this one is certainly an interesting twist.

    From what I remember of the article I posted in the Lyme forum about LPS and sleep, there is indeed a diurnal variation in the immune response that has an effect on sleep.

    Every so often i get what i call the head sweats where i get flushed and only my head sweats, generally only at night, i have wonder if its cortisol spiking. My current virus thing i have my dr has me on prednisolone and shortly after taking it i got the exact same head sweats as i mentioned above. The last few days on pred though i havent had this, maybe cause my cortisol is stable while on pred???

    And the fact that those of us with blood volume problems dehydrate overnight and take hours to rehydrate after we wake up.
