Sleep deprived, no urge to sleep on lying and closing eyes, droopy eyes that open up on closing. What could be the cause?

Hello, . My name is angel and I have been sleep deprived for almost 3 full days no, and I ve tried to lay in bed and close my eyes but I just couldn t find the urge to sleep. My eyes were sleepy but whenever I tried closing them they open right up. I can sleep and I researched a tiny bit and I am very worried about some of the stuff I read online.

Hi Angel
Sleep cycle maintainence or called sleep hygiene is an important aspect of today's tough life.It is a viscious circle more you think more you deprived of sleep.There are some important steps in your life style ,which you should done to maintain sleep cycle :
1.Should not take CNS stimulants like coffee,tea atleast 4-5 hrs before going to bed.
2. Avoid sleep during day time.
3.Make habit of watching some movies or reading before bed
4. your bedroom should be non disturbing due to outsiders voices.
5.Do atleast half an hour evening walk or exercise
Now for this current problem you may take recent benzodiazepines like Zolpedem,zopiclone before sleep.But without above changes these drugs are not so effective.
