Question: I’ve been told by Stanford sleep that I have delayed sleep phase. Is there anyway to verify this…I think its something else I’ve been plagued with for 20 yrs that causes broken sleep?
Kevin: Hi Lawton, Are you unable to fall asleep until really late into the night and forced to wake up early enough to sleep deprive and consistently lower your alertness throughout the day? If the answer is yes, and the doctors at Stanford suggest this is delayed sleep phase syndrome, consider yourself verified I’d say.You mention broken sleep though and something else that you think causes it. Did you discuss this with the doctors whenever you saw them? Or do you care to elaborate a bit more here?For more information on delayed sleep phase syndrome, read through this page and extract all the info you can get out of itAll the best,Kevin
