Sleep and Chronic Pain

Why do we sleep? Why do we have chronic pain?

Suggestion that sleep is to cleanse all the areas of the body that have blood barriers.
Suggestion that without sleep, chronic pain develops in these blood barrier areas.

Sleep may be key for reducing pain. Sleep may be to cleanse those areas outside of the blood stream, or blood barriers.

There is a study that shows that during sleep the blood brain area is cleared through the glymphatic system (see below) . I suggest that this extends to the other blood barrier areas in the body too and that is why we sleep.

blood brain barrier (headaches)
blood spine barrier (back problems)
blood eye barrier (eye strain)
blood ear barrier (ear aches)
blood joint barriers (joint pain)
blood germ cell areas (sexual dysfunction)

Suggestion that the body, during sleep, works from head down and repeats the process 4 or 5 times a night – 4 or 5 cycles of NREM then REM.

NREM (80% of the time) active glymphatic system in blood barriers in brain, eyes, ears, (head area)
REM (20% of the time) active glymphatic system in blood barriers in spine, germ cells, joints. (body area)

BRAIN – BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER
SPINAL CORD – BLOOD SPINAL CHORD BARRIER
EYES – BLOOD RETINAL BARRIER
INNER EAR – BLOOD LABYRINTH BARRIER
PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM – BLOOD NERVE BARRIER
JOINTS – BLOOD SYNOVIAL BARRIER
TESTIS – BLOOD TESTIS BARRIER
