Here are some of the explanation about what can happened to your body if you stopped sleeping for a week ? :->
People spend almost half of their lives sleeping, and still seem to never get enough of it. Have you ever thought what would happen if you stopped “wasting time” on this process? You would surely have a lot of free time for learning something new, doing sports, working, or just hanging out with friends. Sounds cool? But let’s have a look at the consequences of never sleeping again.
After one day without sleep, you’ll feel better than ever. The reason for these strange feelings lies in the fact that your brain increases dopamine levels trying to compensate your lack of sleep. However, closer to the end of the day, this happy mood is evaporating. It’s strictly “not recommended” to drive in such a state, as it may turn extremely dangerous when you’re sleep deprived. After two days without sleep your body will have less and less energy, and you will begin to look pale and a bit ill. What is even worse, your immune system will start to let you down becoming less efficient. Your judgment will get impaired. What is more, the effects of the absence of sleep will be getting worse and worse, and after a short time, the body will begin to shut down. This means that after three sleepless days you’ll be unable to function or communicate normally.
If you manage to fall asleep on the 11th day, shockingly, there won’t be any long-term health effects. This means that after a good and quality sleep lasting about 12 hours, you will be perfectly fine. This doesn’t refer to those people who suffer from fatal familial insomnia. Such patients can survive maximum for a year, and a half granted their condition was worsening gradually, and they still managed to sleep from time to time for the first several months of the disease.
