You guessed it... post concussion symptoms.
that's really scary.
I'd probably off myself tbh
Usually doesn’t it only take about a week without sleep for someone to go insane?
New world record. Old one was 11 days.
He probably had some micro-naps, like 10-15 second naps, and then kept waking up. It insomnia on steroids. It's the absolute worst.
Is that even possible?
Preventing someone from sleep is literally a method of torture.
That's physically impossible. So no he didn't.
It's an exaggreation. He was getting some sleep in. Maybe microsleeps.
This must be exaggerated. I'm not sure it's possible to go 3 weeks without any sleep at all. The current world record for not sleeping is 11 days.
I thought it was death.
Reading the Swedish article, I don't think he meant that he literally went 21 days without sleep. More like he slept like crap for three weeks straight, which is bad enough in and of itself. Hell, I feel like **** after having one night of sleep messed up.
"When it was at its worst, Wallin had major sleep disorders.
- You go to sleep at night. Then you fall asleep and sleep an hour. Then you can not fall asleep [again]. It feels like you've been sleeping for a long time. But the clock is only one at night. How do you get rid of such a thing? It took 21 days for me without sleep, he says."

Perhaps it depends on how they're defining "sleep". Drowsing off for 30 seconds is probably sufficient to break a world record attempt, but it's not what would ordinarily be considered "sleep".
edit: post above this one clarifies... he would drowse off for an hour and that would be it for the night. Changed the thread title to make it more accurate.
Yet Ekblad gets called a ***** for not dropping his gloves.
And Marchand is perfectly within his rights to pump his fist into Eller.
Imagine having to deal with that because you over celebrated a goal......
I have to admit... Thought this was going to be another Fortnite thread.
When I dislocated my shoulder, I spent a couple of days unable to sleep for more than maybe an hour before I'd roll over and the pain would wake me up. After the second night, I was barely functioning when I was supposed to be "awake". 3 weeks of that due to a concussion sounds like torture.
Like I've said in the past, once reliable and feasible premortem CTE testing becomes available, things are going to drastically change. Once we can quantify just how damaged your brain is when you're still alive is going to be the game changer.
Yeah, I injured myself lifting, and being unable to sleep even decently was the worst.
Sure he’s not hooked on Fortnite? All jokes aside head injuries are very scary!!! When I had a concussion I couldn’t lay down for a few days or my head would start spinning had to sleep sitting up.
ST TNG Season 4, Episode 17 - Night Terrors: The Enterprise crew is affected when they are adrift in a remote area of space, and find themselves unable to dream.
REM sleep is important and you can't get it with micro naps.
Lack of sleep feels like you are taking years of your life.
Probably my favorite ST moment was the opposite scenario, when Q becomes human and is horrified to discover that people just lay down and pass out on a daily basis.
It’s the little things we take for granted...
I wonder if it's memory loss. He may not have some memory of falling asleep or waking up.
reading stuff like this makes me very angry
anyone who thinks this sport is getting to "soft" can go get a concussion from an illegal head hit tbh
maybe their brains will get fixed after that
Let's keep blaming players for their placement on the ice when they get hit in the head to avoid further *****ficiation of the league, eh?
As someone who has suffered from medium to severe insomnia for the last 30+ years I can tell you it is not a fun time when it is acting up, it starts to get really rough after around the 3rd to 4th day of being awake straight, thats when you start having problems thinking straight, concentration, mood swings, and you start to hallucinate(longest I have been awake with zero sleep is six and a half days) as bad as being awake 4 to 5 days is I cannot imagine how bad it must get when you add post concussion symptoms to that, has to be hell
