Sleep deprivation is a XXXXXXX condition, has to be treated well much before it cause physical complications.

I want to share one more thing that she has Eye lid and leg movements always.

Brief Answer:
Peripheral nerve weakness

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing back.

If the movements in the eye lid and the leg are involuntary then, it could be due to defective nerve conduction which inturn could be a complication of sleep deprivation. Correction of the sleep cycle can correct the nerve problem.

Also its better to take Vit B 12 supplements as it is essential for maintenance of nerve health.
