Zz Snore

by Jerome Princy (2019-12-20)

The narcoleptic usually Zz Snore Review has problems sleeping at night and, unlike most of us, they "generally experience the REM stage of sleep within 10 minutes; whereas most people do not experience REM sleep until after 30 minutes." These rapid transitions into deep sleep can lead to extremely dangerous situations if they happen at work or on the road. Other symptoms that often accompany narcolepsy are cataplexy (muscle function loss), sleep paralysis, hallucinations, and "automatic behaviors" (normal waking functions performed while asleep, but not remembered when awakened). The protein, Orexin, produced in the brain, is responsible for appetite control as well as the regulation of sleep patterns. The direct cause of narcolepsy has not been found yet, but there appear to be links to gene defects in one or more of the chromosomes responsible for the production of the hypocretins (orexins) in the brain. Orexin production peaks during the hours of wakefulness. Findings published by have shown that dogs born without functioning hypocretin genes develop many symptoms of narcolepsy. Similar links have been found in mice. Amphetamines are the current solution offered to sleep deprived individuals. They are often given to pilots, to truck drivers, and to military personnel on critical missions. These stimulants have many harmful side effects and they are also addicting. The more serious physical side effects are: headache, tachycardia, increased breathing rate, increased blood pressure, fever, diarrhea, blurred vision, dizziness, uncontrollable movements or shaking, insomnia, numbness, palpitations, arrhythmia, convulsions, and heart attack. The negative psychological side effects are: irritability, aggression, power and superiority feelings, obsessive behaviors, paranoia, and amphetamine psychosis. The side effects are frightening, the addiction problem is well documented, and the withdrawal problems can be even more problematical.
