Sleep is a necessity for humans, while sometimes hated by the hard-moving. Important and earthly, human sleep is still mysterious, capturing researchers with puzzles. And when affected by physical or psychological disorders as well as aspects of human life, sleep is often uneasy, brings disturbances and sometimes, disasters. In this list, we explore the most shocking facts about sleep and learn what happens when sleep goes wrong dramatically.
Here are 10 lists of sleep disorders that we find scary:
Bedwetting is a commonly known affliction, but other disorders involving liquid waste may interfere with sleep even though it generally does not produce a wet bed. Nocturia, or Nocturnal Polyuria, is also said to force sufferers to wake up from their sleep up to six times a night to urinate before trying to rest for a moment between episodes. After being thought wrongly as a result of bladder fullness, Nocturia is actually often associated with failure in the body’s natural urine volume reduction system which is normally active while we sleep, making us stay dry and getting enough rest.
Normally, the human body automatically concentrates urine produced during sleep through excretion of diurnal solutes such as electrolytes, while the anti-diuretic hormone vasopressin is released at night to suppress urination. Thus, less urine is produced and the natural tendency to release it is inhibited. This biochemical function works well to prevent sleep disturbances by the repeated need to remove fluids, but Nocturia sufferers do not enjoy such benefits and face serious sleep disorders and deficiencies due to constant trips to the bathroom in the most severe cases. Even some trips to the bathroom can cause fatigue during the day. Fortunately, the worst and most disturbing cases of Nocturia are quite rare.
Catathrenia is a strange name, and even strangers are the nature of this sleep disorder. Categorized as parasomnia until 2013, when it was reclassified as respiratory disorders by the International Classification of Sleep disorder ICSD-3 manual. Catathrenia sufferers, also known as Nocturnal Groaning, make strange noises during sleep that range from moans to screams. Sounds occur when sleeping holds and then releases breath after deep inhalation, most often during REM sleep.
This condition is fundamentally opposed to the situation that defines snoring, where the sound is made as a person who inhales violently. Unlike many other sleep disorders, Catathrenia often fails to wake those affected. As a result, those who experience these conditions may not be aware of their condition. Lasting up to 30 seconds, the moaning often awakens other people who share the sleep environment with sufferers. Strangely, those who have Catathrenia have no difficulty in their facial expressions despite the volume and length of sounds made during sleep. This condition does not seem to be serious compared to other sleep disorders but can cause a sore throat in the hours after waking up.
3. Nocturnal hyperhidrosis
The idea of drowning in your sleep may seem like an unpleasant joke, but the worst example of night sweats makes the idea make sense to sufferers. Known technically as Nocturnal Hyperhidrosis, extreme night sweats can make bedclothes and sheets really wet because water is released from the body in large quantities. Often used as a figure of speech in horror films, awakening soaked with sweat has various medical causes, some minor and some life-threatening. Often seen as a result of menopause, Nocturnal hypohidrosis is not related to the temperature of the sleep environment, but can arise from a variety of serious and serious conditions such as cancer, bone infections, sleep apnea, diabetes and intestinal disorders, and severe anxiety. and stress.
Nocturnal hyperhidrosis can cause severe physical discomfort and can cause feelings of being affected like water, excessive amounts of perspiration begin to evaporate. This condition can indicate some of the most serious diseases known, including bone cancer, heart disease, lymphoma, and in some circumstances, serious psychiatric conditions that require intervention. The International Hyperhydrosis Society notes the importance of seeking medical evaluation in cases of Nocturnal Hyperhydrosis given the potential health problems or life-threatening medical conditions that may be indicated by these symptoms.
4. Exploding Head Syndrome
While the name Exploding Head Syndrome makes this disorder sound as if it is the worst of all sleep disorders, Exploding Head Syndrome is more a disturbing and confusing phenomenon than an immediate, dangerous condition. However, this disorder can cause a considerable degree of distress because it is determined by the perception of noise in the process of falling asleep or waking up. The sound that is heard may resemble a slamming door, a static or metal clash. In certain cases, anxiety resulting from an attack may be enough to cause heart palpitations and tachycardia.
Because it confuses medical scientists, various physiological causes have been proposed as a mechanism that causes symptoms of Exploding Head Syndrome. Mild seizure activity, challenges related to neurons that affect the brain stem and even problems with ear components have been put forward as potential triggers for Explosive Head Syndrome. This condition correlates to some extent with stress and fatigue, and occurs most commonly after the age of 50 with slightly more women than affected men. When the patient falls asleep, the sound can be triggered, only disappearing after waking up. When the patient tries to fall back asleep, the symptoms may return, further hampering sleep. The occurrence of attacks is unpredictable, ranging from single episodes to frequent or occasional recurring attacks.
5. Sleeping Beauty Syndrome
Kleine-Levin Syndrome (KLS), popularly known as Sleeping Beauty Syndrome, is a strange sleep disorder that really affects young people, especially men, in most cases despite its name. Surviving for several years after onset in many cases, a very rare disorder that interferes with life is sleeping like a cat, even more than a cat. Coming in recurring episodes that can last several weeks or even for months, KLS sufferers suffer from very long hours of sleep, sleeping most of the day, sometimes just waking up to get rid of it.
This disorder usually disappears when a person develops a little further into adulthood, but can last for 10 years after onset. Curiously, an apparently sedated state in which suffering people find themselves can lead to a series of strange behaviors and tendencies, including childlike talk, naivete, and confused and confused attitudes. This disorder is very severe to the point where those suffering cannot take care of themselves, but sufferers appear to be normal between attacks. This disorder can cause serious damage to social, personal, and academic performance, and may also be accompanied by binge eating and confusion between real life and dreams.
6. Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Snoring seems to be the biggest disturbance that may occur when sleeping in close proximity to other humans. However, snoring can also be a sign of a potentially shortening condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) where repeated closure of the airways creates a cycle of oxygen deprivation and complete cessation of breathing, waking up, returning to sleep, and other respiratory disorders and awakening. . With hundreds of cycles that occur per night, lack of oxygen due to the attack of Obstructive Sleep can be great.
Adequate oxygen is a key factor in circulatory health, and without it, the heart suffers from running less efficiently and under greater pressure which negatively impacts the entire body. places great strain on the cardiovascular system. Such conditions carry an increased risk of high blood pressure and heart conditions including heart attacks, strokes, heart failure, and arrhythmias. Increased risk factors for developing Obstructive Sleep Apnea include not only innate physiological features. Along with the collapse of soft tissue located in the back of the throat, obesity with excess fat tissue in the throat area increases the likelihood of developing OSA by inhibiting breathing and causing OSA attacks. Trying to reduce unnecessary body fat and sleeping in alternative positions are some of the options available to reduce the harmful effects of OSA.
7. Driving Sleep
We all need to know the dangers of driving while sleepy, but the strange form of “complex automatic behavior” as it is known in the medical field has become an investigation into the safety of anti-insomnia drugs, bringing a number of legal issues. Sufferers of episodes of sleep driving have been captured in various states of consciousness while operating their vehicles. Following a confusing, potentially fatal and legally problematic incident, a person who survived driving with sleep recorded suffering from amnesia, without recalling the incident.
In certain cases, those affected by this automatism condition are found in their vehicles wearing complete sleepwear or stopping at the green light in their vehicle. Case law has caused a discourse that highlights the lack of awareness among some doctors and other clinical practitioners about the fact that the use of the Zolpidem hypnotic sedative can cause complex automatic behavior in the form of driving while sleeping. Although complex behavior and sleep driving after Zolpidem consumption have been explained, the timing of consumption and the legal consequences of such behavior are usually not appreciated by doctors. The most popular sleeping pill known to be used in the United States, Zolpidem may be worthy of being seen more closely by medical professionals to reduce the risk of tragedy by driving while sleeping.
8. Hipnic Jerks
Although restless legs syndrome is already known, rarely explained but the more frequent experience is the sensation of falling during sleep. Technically this is not a sleep disorder, but only an occasional disturbing occurrence that affects sleep, a phenomenon known as Hypnic Jerks is strange and causes some disturbing or even traumatic experiences during sleep and can cause loss of rest. This event reflects the complex physiological conflict between the motor system and the paralysis that our body experiences when we sleep in the transition between two sleep states and being awake.
When we fall asleep, the reticular activating system that controls conscious activity succumbs to the control of the ventilateral preoptic nucleus, which puts us in a sleep state. When the ability of the state of sleep to take over is disrupted, Hipnic Jerks occurs more generally and prominently. Under pressure, conflict is more evident because our ability to sleep is disrupted, causing the conscious state to have an “unfair advantage” over the actions of the ventrolateral preoptical nucleus, creating a greater struggle in the form of more Jerk Hypniks. Hipnic Jerks reflects how stress that makes the process of falling asleep more difficult can cause further disruption through correct jerking when a person will eventually fall asleep, further delaying entering REM sleep.
9. Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome
A condition that rarely and by default always has the most fatal deaths reported from Southeast Asia, the Unknown Nondturnal Nocturnal Death Syndrome disproportionately affects the background of Southeast Asians disproportionately and leads to intense scientific disproportionate investigations. Initially described in 1917, the condition caused victims, generally young men who appeared to be in good health and had no serious medical history, to die suddenly in their sleep, with death most often occurring in the early hours of the morning. Mainly affecting certain genetic groups in various parts of Asia, SUNDS affects different groups at different rates, with much higher rates among certain populations in Thailand and the Philippines for example, with much lower incidence rates in South China.
This condition became famous in the United States when large numbers of refugees fleeing conflict in Southeast Asia came to the United States and became famous by causing mysterious deaths that often occur through sudden nocturnal heart failure. Causes of stress, shock, and heart conditions have all been suggested, with research from Oxford showing heart failure through ventricular fibrillation caused by genetic mutation-based abnormalities that affect the flow of sodium channels. At night, the heart beats in a weaker pattern, according to Matteo Vatta, Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, making the victims of the disease. The ability of the condition to cause sudden death at night inspired the 1984 film A Nightmare on Elm Street and has a number of traditional names in various Asian cultures that reflect awareness of that deadly condition.
10. Fatal Familia Insomnia
Insomnia may seem to be a disturbance in garden varieties, and indeed that is only in the majority of cases. However, this type of hereditary insomnia is far more dangerous than the normal version experienced by people who are stressed or overexcited can cause death during periods of worsening worsening. Because hereditary prions target the thalamus, the part of the brain responsible for controlling the sleep / wake cycle, Fatal Familial Insomnia brings an inevitable stoppage of sleep. This disorder is usually active between the ages of 32 and 62, causing death within 12 to 18 months. Unable to sleep well, sufferers die from neurological degeneration and increase, lack of sleep.
Prions, popularized by “Mad Cow Disease” are strange protein agents that kill by converting healthy proteins in infected organisms into similar folded forms, destroying their functions. The effect is somewhat analogous to the takeover of the human body by viruses, bacteria or cancer conditions, but is truly unique in nature. In the case of Fatal Familial Insomnia, genetic mutations trigger the process of prion formation and damage to nerve cells that define disease. Fortunately, this disease, which is incurable, is very rare, affecting only a few families throughout the world. In couples whose members carry mutations for Fatal Familial Insomnia, there is a 50 percent chance of transmitting dominant genetic abnormalities to their children. In rare cases, this disorder can occur spontaneously, when the protein in a person’s body shifts to the disease-forming structures due to unknown causes.
Those are some diseases that often attack when we sleep or at night.
