Yes, you should go to the hospital, but I am not certain that it needs to be a psychiatric hospital. You may be experiencing a medical problem and need to be evaluated as soon as possible.
Lack of sleep can become serious. Brain functioning decreases. Without the proper sleep, it’s difficult to concentrate and make rational decisions. Lack of sleep can also disrupt your immune system and is associated with other physical health problems.
It’s possible that your symptoms are entirely the result of a severe lack of sleep. It’s also possible that you have an undiagnosed sleep disorder or an underlying medical problem.
The only way to know with certainty what is wrong and what treatment would be the most appropriate, is to seek medical care. Don’t wait any longer. Seek medical attention immediately. Please take care.
