Often Feel Sleepiness.?
I am 22 years old, I want to ask, why do I often get tired when I sleep? Often wake up in the middle of the night. And often sleep continues to fall from a height.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Ketindisan is a condition where you cannot move when you wake up from sleep. Medically this condition is called sleep paralysis. Sleep paralysis can occur before you sleep (or called hypnagogical paralysis), it can occur when you wake up from sleep (or called hypnopompic paralysis). Hypnopompic paralysis occurs because when you sleep, your whole body and all your muscles also "fall asleep" and become very relaxed. If you wake up suddenly in your sleep, your muscles have not "awakened" with you, so you cannot control the movement of your body's muscles. You feel all your muscles cannot be moved, as if you were being "pierced" something heavy. This condition is completely harmless and you have nothing to worry about.
This condition often occurs in several conditions, including:
lack of sleep
significant sleep schedule changes
certain mental disorders
other sleep disorders such as narcolepsy
the use of certain drugs
the use of illegal drugs
While the feeling of falling when you want to start sleeping is called hypnic jerk. This condition occurs because the muscles of your body experience an unconscious contraction suddenly before you sleep. Most people have experienced hypnic jerk and this condition is not dangerous at all. Some conditions such as excessive caffeine consumption, excessive physical activity before going to sleep, stress, and lack of sleep can increase the frequency of hypnic jerk.
To reduce the frequency of sleep paralysis and hypnic jerk, you can see more fully the causative factors mentioned above and avoid these factors.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
