Thái Ngọc: The Man Who Has Not Slept Since 1973

Sleep deprivation, is define as insufficient sleep or sleeplessness, is the condition of not having enough sleep. It can be either chronic or acute and may vary widely in severity.

And no where we can see in the scripture that sleeping is a sin or prohibited, even in one verses in the scripture; it says ” God usually give his beloved good things during sleeping” .

But why is it now totally wrong for this very man called Thanh or Thái Ngọc?

Thái Ngọc is a Vietnamese insomniac (a person who is regularly unable to sleep). Well, since 1973, when he got this new non- dozing ailment, Thanh did not rest and from that point forward, he feels it has been extremely difficult to sleep since 1973.

Thanh suffering is believed to be caused by a sickness that prevents him from having rest like other people. He was given birth in the year 1942, and he’s from Vietnam.

According to the research, from Vietnamese Thai, he is generally known by his community for not sleeping up to 49 incredible years and still counting.

It was stated that Thanh or Thái Ngọc got this strange sickness after suffering from fever in 1973 since then he has found it hard to sleep like other people, but looking at him, he appears to be mentally strong and physically fit like other humans.

But it got to a time he became restless and started to look meager. At this point, it was clear to show that the lack of sleep had started to affect his general well-being.

What might cause such a type of bad condition in a human, leaving him awake almost all the rest of his life?

It was reported Thanh made a statement that he was beginning to feel more like a plant without water because of the lack of sleep.

He finds it hard to rest like other humans. He is still suffering from such sickness without cure or treatments at the moment.

Many suggest that Thanh might have been suffering from obstructive sleep apnea for many years. But what is Obstructive sleep apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea commonly known as OSA, also referred to as obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea, is a sleep disorder that involves cessation or significant decrease in airflow in the presence of breathing effort.

It is the most common type of sleep-disordered breathing and is characterized by recurrent episodes of upper airway collapse during sleep.

OSA that is associated with excessive daytime sleepiness is commonly called obstructive sleep apnea syndrome—also referred to as obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome.

In summary, obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder which results to lack of sleep. But could it be the reason why Thái Ngọc has not been sleeping for more than 45years?
