How To Deal With Disturbed Sleep Patterns And Inflammation In The Eye?
I have a sleep disorder at night. If I am not forced to sleep, I can stay up all night until morning, but I try to force myself to sleep early, but what happens is that I experience excess sleep to 11 hours a night when I fall asleep. again during the 3 hours that happened my eyes became swollen and red and sometimes more eye discharge, and this really bothered me in my activities, whether the thing that caused it to happen and whether it was a symptom of the disease and how to deal with it. Thank you, I’m waiting for the answer. 🙏

Sleep disorders as you experience can occur due to various reasons, some are mild in nature, but some also require further treatment from a doctor. Here are a few possibilities:
Jetlag, for example if you have traveled to an area with a different time zone Physical or psychological fatigue (for example when under stress, many problems, anxiety, busy with work) Effects of excessive caffeine or alcohol consumption Side effects of certain drugs Unhealthy lifestyles, for example irregular eating habits, eating too close to bedtime Having certain illnesses that make the body feel uncomfortable, for example asthma bronkhiale, rheumatoid arthritis, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), congestive heart problems, etc. Eyes that become swollen, reddish, and secreting excess secretions usually indicates inflammation. This inflammation can occur because it is triggered by an infection, insect or other animal bites, contact dermatitis, inappropriate use of contact lenses, foreign body entry into the eye, allergies, and so on. This inflammation can affect any part of the eye, starting from the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis), the uvea tract (uveitis), cornea (keratitis), eyelid (blepharitis), to other parts of the eye that are deeper.
Disturbances in sleep patterns and inflammation in the eyes as you experience them can clearly interfere with your daily activities. To overcome this condition, we recommend that you see your doctor directly. Through in-depth interviews and a thorough physical examination, a doctor can certainly give you the best treatment, whether it is enough with medicine, or maybe also by referring you to the right specialist doctor, such as an ophthalmologist or psychiatrist.
In the meantime, to improve your complaint, here are some suggestions to try:
Cultivate more regular sleep, don't get too late at night, wake up early Get busy with productive activities in the morning until late afternoon, so that you can get sleepy at night Exercise diligently, that is, every 1-2 days. Live a healthy diet and drink, limit caffeine, stay away from alcohol Don't eat too much near bedtime Arrange your bedroom to be more comfortable, not noisy or glare Clean out eye secretions using clean tissue soaked in warm water, don't use dirty hands Use protective eyewear so that the eyes do not concede foreign substances dangerous Dripping artificial tears (artificial tears) so that the eyes feel more comfortable Compress swollen eyes with warm water while elevated while sleeping Hopefully it helps ..
