Are sleeping ticks really growing？ _1
Is the sleep lice really growing?
People may have experienced this. They were still running in their sleep the first second, and then stepped on the air in the next second.
At this time, people usually experience body twitching, and long hair wakes up in their sleep.
Old people say that the tics in this sleep are growing.
After hearing this, I couldn’t help but secretly rejoice. If I can grow a few centimeters higher, it is sometimes worthwhile to kick more in my sleep.
But is this statement unreliable?
After you fell asleep, did you suddenly smoke and stomp your legs?
This phenomenon can cause people to wake up in sleep. If it occurs several times a night, it will indeed affect people’s sleep quality.
However, some people think that this twitch is closely related to the growth of the human body, isn’t it?
Let us understand why the human body sleeps and twitches.
Sleep twitch is a harmless physiological phenomenon Sleep twitch is a kind of rapid muscle involuntary twitching, similar to an electric shock.
Occurs when people fall asleep, and people “voluntarily” briefly. This phenomenon is called hypnic jerk.
This situation occurs in normal people, and one or two sleep twitches may be felt in one day, while more non-strong twitches will not be noticed by us in our sleep.
At the same time, there is evidence that excessive stress or irregular sleep can lead to more sleep twitches, but as a harmless normal physiological phenomenon, there are occasional problems with multiple tics.
However, if you smoke too many times and continue to twitch every twenty to forty seconds, it is no longer a sleep twitch, but a type of sleep disorder called limb movement disorder.
The cause of sleep twitch has not been clarified or due to neurological effects.
There are two popular hypotheses.
One hypothesis considers this to be a special neural activity.
This is because people need to go through a series of complex neurological reactions from waking to falling asleep, so that people can switch from waking to sleep.
However, in this switching process, the reticular activation system (RAS) performs an important role. The muscles also switch state when they fall asleep, but if the RAS is wrong during the switch, it will stimulate the nerves and cause convulsions.
In addition, there is another view that this is a glitch in the work of the brain.
This is because people entering sleep tics may be increasing subcortical activity. When they fall asleep, the muscles of the whole body begin to relax. Because of the lack of a feedback signal, the brain mistakenly thinks that this kind of muscle relaxation is the body’s dangerous information, so it mobilizes the motor system to protect it.Yourself, which causes muscle twitching.
This perspective links sleep twitching with the sensations caused and fits with the feeling of falling in people’s sleep.
But this hypothesis has not found an in-depth functional explanation, so further experimental confirmation is needed.
It may be known that twitching after falling asleep has nothing to do with decompression. This phenomenon has nothing to do with people, and if this situation reappears, they may even be wary of an individual’s illness.
In fact, our body’s usual snoring, falling asleep twitches, and muscle twitches that occur during fatigue or tension are all normal physiological activities, so you can ignore them occasionally.
And during the day, people will twitch, but people are “moving” during the day and can’t pay attention.
There is evidence that excessive stress or abnormal sleep can lead to more sleep twitches. If you often experience sleep twitches, then you should decompress yourself appropriately.
