i've been reading some of the posts about the stages of sleep, and i was just wondering...if that theory about FM is true, and doctors were prescribing medicines that supposedly cause you to go through stage four...wouldn't that cure the FM? And since it doesn't, doesn't that make the theory inaccurate? Unless the meds just don't really put people through to stage four sleep...then it would be the medications at fault, not the theories. i might be thinking very naively...i'm just very curious as to see what you think? sorry if this sounds stupid, it just occured to me though. thought i'd post about it =].
