Is It Safe To Sleep With Headphones On
No, bad idea: If they are wired headphones, you could choke yourself. No matter wired or wireless, they will interfere with your ability to have good sound sleep when you move during your sleep, plus they could prevent you from hearing a smoke detector if your place is on fire.
Without music: If you are using earbuds to block noise the main problem is if you get tangled in the cord. In that case foam earplugs or a white noise machine might be better. But if you are wearing them to listen to music or audiobooks you need to be aware that the longer you are exposed to noise the greater the chances of hearing loss. Save your noise exposure for when you are awake.
Yes, with care: Ear plugs are generally safe however they may push wax into your ears and cause a cerumen impaction in some folks. Also keep them clean or replace them regularly to prevent contamination and possible infection. If your wearing them due to painful hearing, and not just to reduce noise so you can sleep better, your should see a doctor to be evaluated.See 1 more doctor answer
?: We have no direct evidence that cell phones are causing brain problems. With our incredible immersion in electromagnetic waves I would think that is one avoidable risk.
Yes: Sleeping with your bra on will not harm you. Some plastic surgeons even recommend it to prevent sagging. It can be uncomfortable for some. Personal preference is probably the best guide. Best wishes!
Depends partly on: Previous use of this med or other opioids.30mg of hydrocodone is a pretty substantial dose even for people used to taking it, but if you are new to taking opioids it could suppress your respiratory drive (breathing) to dangerously low levels. You should have someone monitor you. Please at least make someone aware of what you have taken and how you feel, if not actually seeking medical attention.
I accidentally set a small, plastic cup on fire in my room. The smoke has pretty much cleared, fires out. Is it safe to sleep in there?
Hopefully no fire: Hazards. The chemicals in plastic are only even minorly hazardous if you have asthmatic reaction to it. If you haven't by now.... no wheeze, difficulty breathing, then unlikely to happen.

I hit the back of my head on concrete I was able to get up right away. I have a slight headache in the back of my head since then which was a few hrs ago. Is it safe to sleep? I had no other symptoms.
Yes you can sleep: The CDC has worksheets on concussions to figure out the severity and when you are able to return to activity. To find these just go to the cdc website. According to the information you have given me you definitely have a concussion and should be at rest which does not include tv and video games it actually means sleep as much as possible to allow your brain to heal.See 1 more doctor answer
