It’s one of the most common complaints people have about sleeping.
“I feel so tired,” says Jodie Lee, “I can’t get enough sleep.
I have a headache, I feel very lethargic.
I feel like I have to go to the bathroom to do anything.”
Sleep specialists have spent decades trying to get their patients to sleep well.
In a recent study, they found that sleep was better than pain in some patients.
In other studies, sleep was more beneficial than pain and that it’s often better than medication.
But experts are divided over whether the benefits are real.
Sleep specialists like to argue that it doesn’t matter how much sleep you get.
But a lot of research suggests otherwise.
It’s been shown that people with chronic pain benefit more from getting enough sleep than people with no pain.
That may not be a huge leap of faith, but the scientific literature on sleep has been surprisingly consistent.
Sleep has a huge impact on your health and well-being The Sleep Journal published a review of sleep research on chronic pain and found that getting enough to keep you awake is a key factor in maintaining health.
“We found that for chronic pain patients, sleep may improve symptoms and function,” said lead author Laura Boesch.
Boesche is a sleep specialist with the Cleveland Clinic Sleep Center and she believes that sleep is the “gold standard” for pain.
“It’s been suggested that the sleep that patients get is the gold standard for pain management,” she said.
“If it’s too much, it could lead to side effects, or it could cause problems with their health.”
Sleep has health benefits for everyone from the elderly to children to people with diabetes.
Sleep helps with memory and concentration The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends that people get a minimum of eight to 12 hours of sleep per night, including two hours for “recess” and one hour for a nap.
Betsch says the optimal amount of sleep is between 10 and 15 hours.
“There is evidence that when people get about 15 hours, it can improve the brain’s ability to process information and the cognitive abilities,” she says.
Baysch said it can also help you keep up with the activities of the day, like schoolwork and socializing.
“People who are very sleepy can get distracted and not concentrate on what they’re thinking about,” she explains.
“The best way to reduce sleepiness is to get a lot more sleep.”
But there is some evidence that sleep doesn’t help with pain.
Sleep expert, sleep specialist and writer and producer of the podcast Sleepy Dr. Katz talks with Dr. Michael Greger about sleep and pain.
The sleep expert, the sleep specialist: Dr. Jodiette Boesches is a professor of sleep medicine at the Cleveland Pain Clinic and a sleep expert with the Sleep Journal.
Dr. Botsch has a strong interest in sleep and its effect on the body.
She believes that people have to get enough and she recommends getting 8 to 12 to get the most out of your sleep.
She said that the benefits of sleep are two-fold: It helps with your sleep quality and your brain’s function.
She says people who have chronic pain are likely to benefit from getting a lot less sleep than those with no.
“For chronic pain, we’re getting a little bit of sleep,” she explained.
“When we get more sleep, we get better sleep.”
The sleep specialist suggests getting 8 hours of REM sleep, which is a deep, slow, slow sleep.
The rest of the night is spent in REM sleep.
“Dr. Bowersch suggests getting 4 hours of deep, rapid, deep sleep,” Boeschi said.
She recommends that you have one night of deep sleep, three nights of slow, regular sleep, and two nights of restorative sleep.
In addition, you should take a nap after you wake up.
Biesch also suggests that if you have chronic or severe pain, “get the sleep you need to get back to being able to do what you need.”
Boeschness recommends getting a total of 10 to 15 hours of regular sleep each night, which can be up to eight hours.
If you don’t have any pain, the recommended amount of REM time per night is between six and 10 hours.
Dr Boescheness said that if people with arthritis or other chronic pain can’t tolerate 8 hours, she suggests that they “take it easy for the first few weeks of the week and then gradually increase the amount of deep and rapid sleep you have.”
Biesches advice on sleep can also be helpful for people with sleep apnea.
“Sleep apnea is the condition where your body does not shut down properly during sleep,” said Boescher.
“So you have a delay of breathing that’s caused by the brain not shutting down properly.
That delay of the brain allows the body to stay awake for longer periods of time.”
