A Chinese woman’s unbelievable claims have left doctors baffled. The woman revealed that she hasn’t slept a single night since she was a child.
The woman named Li Zhanying, from the Henan province in eastern China claimed that the last time she slept was when she was just 5. Her revelations about her bizarre habits made her famous in her area.
People in her area thought that she is making false claims therefore they tried to stay awake with her all night and also played cards with her. However, some slept on the table while some returned to their home. But, Li didn’t sleep for a single minute.
Her husband Lui Suoquin also said that he had never seen his wife sleeping. He told that Li cleans their house during night hours instead of sleeping.
Suoquin also gave her sleeping pills to treat what he thought was insomnia, but it didn’t work.
Later, he took her to doctors, they were also failed to provide any medical explanation behind Li’s sleepless nights, according to the Chinese news site Bastille Post.
Recently, they visited a specialist sleep centre in Beijing, which has solved the mystery behind Li’s uncommon problem. During a medical examination, it was revealed that Li does sleep, however, not as normal people do.
The doctors noticed that Li’s eyes would slow down and she would actually fall asleep, despite her conversation with her husband.
The result was shown on a brainwave monitor that showed Li’s eyes were never closed for more than 10 minutes a day.
The doctors at the sleep centre explained that this strange phenomenon was similar to how the body of sleepwalkers is active while the brain is asleep. Technically, Li only sleeps in those 10 minutes only and her body is fully functional. Due to this reason, she never slept in the last 40 years.
Isn’t a bizarre reason? What do you think?
