I sleep 10-13 hours a night, and am still tired for the day.. What's wrong?
If I sleep 10-13 hours a night, I'm kindof groggy all day.. If I make myself wake up after 8 hours, I have to take a nap in the middle of the day, which makes me fall asleep WAY later in the nighttime, and the only temporary solution I have come up with is to sleep one night for 3 hours, then I'm not tired at all during the day, but the next night I HAVE to sleep 12+ hours, not even a tornado could wake me up before that.. And I end up groggy all day again. It's an endless cycle. What do I do?(I'm 15 in case it might have something to do with age?)
I sleep for 11-12 hours every night and I'm still tired?
It's been like this for a while. I don't get into bed until midnight because I'm just not at all tired and even then I lay there for a good 30 minutes to an hour and then I sleep in until noon. When I wake up I'm really tired and lethargic. I just woke up but I really just want to lie in bed and slip in and out of sleep for a while. This is going to be a huge problem for me because I'm a freelance web developer and I'm looking for an 40 hours per week in-house job. I got up at 7am for an interview yesterday (granted I was still up at 12 the night before) and had to take a couple hour nap when I got home. Am I not eating right or something? If I get this job I'm going to be programming 8-5 every week day and taking 3 hour college classes on the weekends. I will be needing to thesis papers after work and all that good stuff. I know I can push myself but why do sleep 11-12 hours every night and am still tired?
Couldn't sleep last night, wasn't tired. Help?
Sleeping pills can give you bad side effects such as headaches and drowsiness during the day so you are better off without them. To sleep better just relax and switch off, if you can. If you are having trouble switching off at bedtime some light exercise (for example, push ups or sit ups) at bedtime often helps you to relax, unwind and switch off and that often improves your sleep. Strenuous exercise at bedtime is likely to ruin your sleep. Common OTC sleep aids include Chamomile tea, 5-HTP, Melatonin and Valerian Root. Sleep enhancing foods include warm milk, turkey, cherries, oatmeal, bananas, wine and others as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22s...

I only got 4 hours of sleep last night- will I be okay?
I'm 15. Last night I really wasn't tired, but the problem was, I was excited because my family will be coming over for Christmas today. I wanted to sleep well. I went to bed around 11, and fell asleep at 11:30. But then I woke up at 3:30, and I couldn't sleep the rest of the night! I kinda have to wake up now to open my presents. Should I go back to sleep later, because my family won't come until 3. Or do you think I can survive the day?
Despite sleeping for 7-8 hours every night, I feel extremely sleepy each morning. How do I change this?
You can get 7–8 hours of sleep but not get quality sleep. Getting an extra hour or two of sleep is a big deal, and some people need more than 7 hours of sleep. People who are depressed tend to oversleep, and that can cause further fatigue.If you don’t have depression, you should track your sleeping patterns to see if you are actually getting deep sleep. If you keep waking up at night you are not getting enough deep sleep. Also try to sleep 8–9 hours instead of 7— an extra hour or two can make a huge difference.It’s also normal to wake up feeling sleepy, even if you slept well. Our beds are comfortable and we don’t want to start the day. It’s more enjoyable to stay in our warm bed. It also takes time for our brain to wake up. Taking a cold shower, having coffee, forcing yourself to move fast and get your blood flowing, getting a morning workout in— can help you to wake up faster. Doing cardio, strength and flexibility exercises helps you to wake up in the mornings without feeling stiff. Having good circulation and a strong body helps you to jump out of bed quickly. Not eating the night before and having an early dinner, can help you to wake up more easily. You feel more motivated to wake up when you are in bed and your stomach is grumbling for food.I need 8–9 hours of quality sleep to function at my best. I usually don’t get that much quality sleep, so most of the time my mind and body is not functioning at optimal levels. At 6–7 hours of sleep I am moody, forgetful and have slower reaction times. At 5–6 hours I am very irritable and get very little done, even when I try to get as much done as I can. My mind is just not working. Sleeping 4–5 hours or less per night for more than 2–3 nights in a row, is dangerous for me. I’ve almost fallen asleep driving during weeks when I couldn’t get much sleep.I wish I was one of those people who are productive and healthy when they get only 5-6 hours of sleep every night, but I need at least 6–7 to remain sane, 7–8 to be healthy and 8–9 to have optimum mental and physical health.
Is my puppy having nightmares/night terrors?
Last night my Chihuahua puppy was crying loudly right after she would fall asleep. When I'd grab her she'd grab me tight as if she were scared, but she was so tired to kept just falling asleep. She would do it and first almost every hour of the night the about 30 min into falling back asleep. She wouldn't stop shaking but would stop crying when being petted back to sleep. Could it be nightmares or anything like that, or could it possibly be something else?
