Sleep may play a key role in the production and repair of myelin, the protective covering of nerve cells that is attacked and damaged in people with multiple sclerosis, according to early research in mice carried out at the University of Wisconsin.

The research found that the rate of production of a type of brain cell called oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs) doubled in sleep relative to waking. OPCs are a type of cell that give rise to myelin in both healthy and injured adult brains...... Read More - http://www.ms-uk.org/index.cfm/myelin

I never had and still don't have any sleeping problem. Still my MS is progressing . . .

Lack of sleep is bad for anybody - and too much isn't healthy either
