Can Sleep Deprivation cause vague aches and pains?
Off and on for a year now, I'll get body aches, maybe my ears will hurt, slightly stuffy nose, sometimes a slight sore throat, and a constant forehead headache. Most of the time it only last for three or four days and doesn't go through the normal "Cold" or "Flu" like symptoms or cycle.
I just started a new semester almost two months ago. I've been going to bed at 11 or 12 and twice a week waking up at 6:30 am to go to school. I've always needed a bit more sleep than most. However I can't seem to get in bed by 9 , whether it is because of waiting for medications to be taken or some show on tv to watch.
I don't really have a hard time sleeping...However I wake up once or twice on the times I have to get up early ...Like I'll get up at 3 or 5, but I'll go back to bed, and it is hard to drag myself out.
Can sleep deprivation or fatigue from depression, chronic pain, medications that make you sleepy , create vague cold like symptoms? Anyone experience this?
