Rem Sleep Deprivation Symptoms
Variable!: Normal birth and delivery? If in doubt discuss with your pediatrician new born has very prolonged periods of rem, seizures are short lived events, as a rule?
Night and Day: Rem refers to rapid eye movement sleep and non-rem refers to sleep that is not rem. Non-rem is further divided into n1, n2, n3 stages where n3 refers to the deepest stage. Rem is usually when we dream and has similarities physiologically to being awake. We cycle through these different stages about every 90 minutes of sleep.See 1 more doctor answer
Closely: The symptoms of narcolepsy are those of parts of rem sleep intruding into wakefulness. These elements include sleepiness; hallucinations (dream imagery) while falling asleep or waking up; and cataplexy and sleep paralysis (both from the normal muscle paralysis that occurs during rem sleep).See 2 more doctor answers
Yes, there can be.: People who do not get enough rem sleep tend to feel more fatigued. Rem is where you get the deepest sleep which is the most restful and restorative. Mood swings, irritability, decreased concentration are all possibilities. Your rem sleep quantity can be determined with an overnight sleep study. Speak to your doctor if you feel like this may be an issue.See 1 more doctor answer

Maybe: Human growth hormone (hgh) is particularly released during delta phase of sleep, the deepest sleep level. In an adult, hgh is involved in many pathways involved in maximum tissue and organ performance and minimizes age related breakdown. Remember, it is not necessarily total sleep time but more so the quality and level of delta sleep levels that may be at play.See 1 more doctor answer

I have woken up during my REM sleep two nights in a row and found myself paralyzed. Is this something I should be worried about?
Sleep paralysis: You have experienced sleep paralysis. It can occur sporadically or chronically and in both it can be scary but otherwise benign. If you are having episodes of hallucinations at night, trouble with insomnia, extreme sleepiness during the day and/ or episodes of muscle weakness such a facial drooping or knees buckling, then you should see a sleep specialist to be evaluated for narcolepsy. Best wishe.
I do know that when you in a REM sleep your HGH get released at night, and if you wake up does the HGH process stop or still continues?
Most common: It is most common in rem sleep but it can also occur in non rem sleep. Particularly deeper or delta sleep.
Good question: Light suppresses melatonin release, even light from a digital clock. Therefore it will be harder to maintain your sleep and this will potentially cause sleep disruption, which in turn will adversely impact rem sleep. Even more importantly, it will impact deep phase sleep which is where you will get the most restorative sleep.
Why: Why would anyone want to so this? It's unnatural. But most meds decrease rem sleep and if you woke yourself up every hour you'd probably decrease it somewhat. Regardless I wouldn't advise it.
