In brief: Quite Common

Lack of sleep can cause a number of ailments: poor concentration, poor memory, altered mood, fatigue, headaches (even migraines), lack of attentiveness, and many other effects.
It is very similar to being intoxicated. It is very important to see a doctor to evaluate why you have lack of sleep. It is not healthy to be sleep deprived.
