Hello, I’m 18 years old, some days I occasionally experience things that I think are unnatural, at night I already feel sleepy, after I close my eyes, I seem to have slept, I already feel unable to move anymore, but strangely I still feeling conscious, but a moment later my ears ring and my head dizzy, suddenly my eyes forced to make me come back to my senses, and it was very painful in the eyes and head, sometimes it was repeated 3 times in a row and I had to do activities like using a cellphone in advance for around 15 minutes so that nothing similar happens, why is that?
Hello Iqbal, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Sleep is a process that is quite complex to occur where sleep itself can be divided into several phases and also how many levels during the process takes place and the interruption / disturbance in one part that plays a role in one's sleep process, so complaints of sleep disorders can appear like one of them that you feel. The cause itself can be quite diverse can include depression, anxiety disorders, consumption of food / drinks that inhibit sleep processes such as caffeine / alcohol, or damage to one part of the brain that plays a role for sleep such as due to injury, stroke, or tumor.
Therefore, to find out which part of your sleep process is disturbing, it is highly recommended to consult further with a neurologist for analysis. It is also very likely that you will be recommended for certain examinations to determine where the disturbance is causing your complaint.
In the meantime, there are a number of things you can try to do to help reduce your complaints such as:
Improving personal hygiene before going to bed Improving the cleanliness of the place and bedroom Avoiding the consumption of food or drinks containing caffeine or alcohol before going to bed Give the distance between dinner time and sleep time of at least 3-4 hours Avoiding the use of gadgets 1-2 hours before bedtime, and keep the gadget you from your bed Avoiding excess stress Make sure you get enough time to relax yourself daily Doing exercise regularly and regularly at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes If complaints of pain are felt to be very disturbing, you can try taking pain relievers such as paracetamol according to the packaging dose until there is further advice from a doctor. Hope it helps.
