Lack of sleep is one of my main migraine triggers!
I'm always careful to get enough or bad stuff happens!!!

I can not cope with lack of sleep, if I havent slept DH has to have the next day off work or I'm in pieces.

My son didn't sleep through until he was 2, and I coped ok. But it's not optimal.
Op, have you had a blood test recently to check your levels are ok?

Ive been sleep deprived for nearly 2 years now!!!!
But I have worked, shift work, on call 24 hour etc so nothing new.
I am lucky that I have only ever needed 6-7 hours of sleep, whereas DH needs about 9!!!!
I find I can also go one night with hardly any sleep and I'll be ok, but NOT 2 nights in a row with no sleep.
And needless to say, drink waaay too much coffee!

Yes, extreme lack of sleep is terrible! Like another poster I have been so tired that I was hallucinating and felt like I was on something. I have also fallen asleep at the wheel for a split second and it was ok but I have never driven while that tired again.
With just normal lack of sleep... I didn't think it was getting to me that much and was boasting a few months ago that I am used to having only 4-5 hours a night and felt fine with that much. Then a few weeks ago we were on holidays and in the same room as the kids, so we went to sleep at 7 with them and woke up at 6/7 with them every night for a week. By the end of that week my energy levels were sky high! I wasn't constantly hungry, my head was SO clear and I felt great. It made me really see how poorly my body is trying to cope with such little sleep. I have slipped back into bad habbits with the comp and tv back home again but after spending yesterday feeling horrible, I am pledging to try to sleep better again! lol.

I'm not good on lack of sleep. I become grumpy, lazy and very short tempered. Not pleasant for anyone. I too have been known to cry and retreat due to lack of sleep so your not alone Jerty. I think that is part of why I get so annoyed when hubby sleeps in regularly and I rarely get to. It is also one of my epilepsy triggers so it isn't healthy for me. Good thing I'm well medicated or I'd be seizing almost daily. I need 8.5 hours ideally but that hasnt happened in ages.
