My husband has had a problem about waking up.He has no problems about falling to sleep.He does not even hear a alarm clock go off.I have to try for an hour to get him up for work.It seems to be getting worse.What is this problem?And how can we fix it?
I would suggest that he talk to his doctor about having a sleep study done. He'll spend the night in a sleep lab where they'll hook him up to monitors and measure his sleep patterns. He could have sleep apnea- where he stops breathing for short periods during the night. (If you allow him to fall asleep before you do, you may be able to notice this.) He could also have narcolepsy or be sleep walking.
One other thing that might help, in case he doesn't have a sleep disorder: make sure your curtains are light enough to allow natural light into the room. This won't help if he gets up before the sun rises, but if he needs to be up later, the sunlight helps to 'tell' the body to stop making melatonin and wake up. I hope this information helps you out.
