Why are we not able to sleep in the same posture for long?

Why are we not able to sleep in the same posture for long?

Protective Measures: When lying down certain areas of the body and the overlying skin are subjected to high pressures. Lying on your side can subject your hip area to pressures up to 200lbs/square inch. After 20 minutes at these pressures, the skin starts to break down. Nerves under high pressure signal the brain to cause a shift in body position thus redistributing the pressure to protect the skin. ...Read more

Diazepam is old: As a sleeping aid we do not use it often since it is habit forming. Cognitive behavioral therapy (cbt) is the preferred way of treating insomnia.

But stopping some can lead to a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor discontinuation syndrome. The electric shocks can also occur w coming off of some ssri's. Please discuss this w your treating psychiatrist. A slower taper is often helpful. In the meantime practice good sleep >>>. ...Read more
