Sleeping or not sleeping
The last couple of days I have a strange sleeping pattern. I will fall asleep. But when sleeping I do feel as if I am not sleeping. I am aware of all the pains and aches of the body. I hear all the night sounds and dogs barking. My eyes feel thick and puffy during my " sleep" . When I wake up I am not tired. Could you please explain this?

Thank YOU
