Default Sleeping pattern

Hello,

There is one thing I am partly confused about because I've heard that late night sleeping is bad for a concussed brain and can cause symptoms and I've experienced this first hand actually. Hearing about it just confirmed my already existing suspicions.

My question is, what time should a concussed person sleep at as the latest time?

Thanks in advance!

Id say its a little different for all people? Just having a good pattern is the key....I go to bed at 8pm get up at 5am, like clockwork.I went for 7 to 8 years of very little sleep and I was a mess....Find what works best for you

The important part about sleep is that it is quality sleep at a time when your brain expects to sleep. Quality of sleep is far more important than the time of sleep or even duration of sleep. Your brain cycles through the stages of sleep best during your normal sleep times (circadian rhythm)

I go to sleep at about 2 am most nights. I get great sleep and wake between 7 and 8 am, refreshed. Some nights, I might be sleepy at 1 am.

I you don't fall asleep within 5 minutes of laying down, your brain is not ready to sleep. Learn about sleep hygiene and practice it daily. It can take months to establish a quality sleep pattern.

Yes, quality of sleep is important. If you don't feel refreshed after sleeping, you might want to look into doing a sleep study that tests not only for sleep apnea but UARS also.

Few sleep studies look for Central Sleep Apnea. CSA is often a problem with people who have suffered a head/brain injury.
