I know you're not doctors...
« on: July 15, 2017, 04:45:50 AM »
I get really tired at a certain time of night and my body gets really weak, all very quickly. This all started after I did the sensory deprivation. It started off with extreme sudden sleepiness. But that let up a little bit and now my body gets weak too.

Any idea why?

Have you had any ear problems, Arturo, pain or "fluffy" hearing?

The  :airquotes: sensory deprivation :airquotes: is basically just a bath, isn't it?  :chin:

Could a bath be making you sleepy?

Well basically there are chemicals present in certain parts of the brain called endochrinious fluids, which are responsible for causing sleepiness. These are mainly found in the hippothalmus. A certain temperature of water on your skin causes sensory neurones to become stimulated in a certain way, causing them to send a unique signal to the brain. This signal causes the ‘sleep activator’ to be released and transported around the body. It causes muscles to relax more and slows your heart rate.

Hope this helped.

"A certain temperature of water"  :thoughtful:
...I wonder if changing the temperature of your  :airquotes: sensory deprivation chamber :airquotes: would make a difference in how you feel afterwards.  :eyebrow:


I'm just kidding with the: :airquotes: sensory deprivation chamber :airquotes:

You know me.  ::)

Not really. Sometimes I wake up with pain in my ear from sleeping on it.

I haven't done the deprivation thing in forever. I just did it a few times then stopped.

Not really. Sometimes I wake up with pain in my ear from sleeping on it.

So do I! From short term discomfort to hours of shooting pains. Could be a product of my low blood pressure. Now I find ways to rest my head without pressure on the ear.

Inner ear infection can cause drowsiness and wobblyness, but I have to admit more like balance problems than what you describe.

Personally I would give up weird "treatnent" systems and regimes! A good diet, pleanty of fluids and sufficient, moderate, exercise to keep the muscles toned and the flab off is enough.

I stopped sleeping on pillows about two years ago. Instead of a pillow, I fold a bath towel until I have a pad about 50mm thick. This cured my neck pains and I immediately started sleeping much better.

Good thinking Ba... Hermes. I often find my head off the pillow altogether, otherwise I try to rest only the side of my skull on it, not down to the ear. Luckily I rarely suffer neck problems unless I am looking downwards whilst reading or on the laptop for long periods.

I would like to sleep on the floor sometimes. I mean that's the natural way to sleep. Not all the time though but it does have it's benefits!

Well, technically I am.  I went to medical school.....

How have you been feeling otherwise?  Any signs of infection or illness?
