Trying to sleep but there is a tingling feeling

Lately, on some days when I try to go to sleep, my while body starts tingling. It s very annoying and when I open my eyes, it goes away. When I close my eyes to try to sleep, it starts. I really want to try to stop this but I don t know how.. What should I do? I m a girl who is almost 16 years old. What I noticed was that when I sleep during the day (today was 3-4 hours after school) I have the problem at night. At least I think so.

Psychiatrist Dr. Keerthish Shetty's  Response
At your age, transient stress related problems are common. Try following a good sleep hygiene (some points which improve sleep quality like sleeping everyday at same time, no exercise or tea/coffee before sleep etc). Contact a specialist for more details if the problem persists.

Hi I m 26 years old and lately I ve been feeling a strange tingling feeling as well as some slight pain on the right side of my brain. This doesn t happen every night but it does put me in a very deep sleep. No matter how hard I try to wake myself up it just makes me more drained. I go to sleep at a normal time like 10pm and wake up at 7am but when this effect takes over I sleep until 9am but I m left feeling tired the rest of the day so I take short naps because I m a mother of three. I just like to know how serious this could possibly be. Thank you for your time.

Lately I have been waking up with that sleeping feeling in both of my knees. They are numb and start tingling once I move them and stretch. I have no history of knee problems, and currently do not have any pain or swelling. This only happens when I am sleeping on my back, I have tried to sleep with my legs elevated to see if that helps, but is does not seem to make a difference. Is this something I should be concerned about? Or is this just a minor inconvenience I have to deal with?

I have been bothered with a tongue condition for about a year. It seems to come and go but is mostly an annoyance when I am trying to go to sleep. My tongue looks normal but sometimes feels like it is too big for my mouth. When trying to sleep I seem to want to force it against my teeth and roof of my mouth. It burns and tingles too. I have asked my dentist and my General Practitioner but no one has an answer.

Does the rocking of a ship increase insomnia in those who have recently had a stroke and exhibit an increased startle reaction? I recently shared a cabin with a stroke victim who claimed she could not sleep all night. What I noticed is that repeatedly in the middle of the night she would suddenly and violently wake up without cause and think I was making noise. She also the week before the trip underwent an invasive procedure endoscopicly to see if she needed a stint placed in her artery. Could she be reacting to that, too? She claimed she slept better once we were in a hotel on land and I got my own cabin. Others in my family report that I am a quiet sleeper, so I believe I am not the cause of her insomnia which has plagued her all her life. A very light sleeper, or is something more serious going on that her doctor needs to know about? Thanks for your answer in advance. Nina Daniel
