NightShift affectin sleep
I work in rotational shifts and have to work 6 or 7 night shifts per month. But I don't get sleep during day time. I can sleep for maximum of 3 hours. This is affecting my health very badly. Before this I never had habit of sleeping during day time. So now I am not able to sleep during day time after night shift. Is this any kind of disorder and if I consult any somnologist can he/she help this problem? Thanks.

Hi, this is more common problem among shift workers, as our mind has biological set up night time is to sleep. This problem sometimes will subside by itself after some time around 2 weeks. But if persists consult psychiatrists they will help you. Sometimes it is possible that may stop shift working if not responding to treatment.
