What will happen to the body if you do not sleep for several days

(ORDO NEWS) — A full-fledged sleep is necessary for the normal functioning of the whole body.

No amount of energetics and methods of “seals” written about on the Internet will help to restore strength and energy reserves, this has been scientifically proven.

Lack of sleep can lead to various consequences, in rare cases a person can even die.

A simple example of what a lack of normal sleep does to a person is shown in the movie “Machinist” with Christian Bale.

The actor lost a lot of weight for the role, and he looks creepy there. Doctors say that due to lack of sleep, people are more likely to be injured at work and get into accidents while driving.

And, if 1 night without sleep is still an acceptable life scenario, provided that a person then gets a full rest, then a longer time in non-stop mode will lead to terrible consequences.

Here are just some of the problems that manifest as a result of 1 sleepless night:

  • Drowsiness during the day
  • Irritability and moodiness
  • Tremors in the hands
  • Hearing problems
  • Poor concentration

If a person goes without sleep for 1.5 days, his body will produce a huge amount of the stress hormone cortisol.

It will cause hormonal imbalance, due to which problems with appetite will appear, body temperature may rise.

Also, a person will begin to experience cognitive difficulties and will not be able to make adequate decisions. In addition to this, severe fatigue will appear, speech disorders are possible.

After 48 hours without sleep, a person may even begin to lose his mind and cease to perceive reality normally.

The body plunges into a state of microsleep (short-term loss of consciousness). In addition, the immune system will fail. Therefore, the risk of getting sick even with a common cold will increase.

If a person does not sleep for 72 hours, then he will hardly be able to do even ordinary things.
