Anyone know much about this?Everything I read shows it is caused by drugs or combinations of drugs.A family member is on life support,the doctors are giving him 48 hours to show some improvnment or they unplug him.How can they be giving us a diagnosis of neurolytic (sic) malignant syndrome when they said he had NO drugs in his system when this all began?Is this just a "catch-all"diagnosis because they are stumped?
