I used to be able to stay awake for the whole 2days (max) without feeling a little bit woozy. It started way back in college when there were a lot of reports and papers that needs to be done. I could stay up whole 2days but I should have at least 3 days to recuperate. But now, I can barely stay 24 hours without feeling woozy.. How about you?

Not even a single hour these days because my eyes are not at their best and they need atleast 8 hours of sleep every day. So, if I get to be awake for even 17 hours in a day, I will start feeling bad and headache in my head. Earlier I did spent had 60 hours without sleep!

Hi laydee. My maximum would have to be 36 hours. After that, I won't be able to do anything productive anymore. Times when I have to stay awake longer, I would take an hour of sleep and then get back to work. I hate doing this, though, as it really takes a toll on my body clock. I end up getting headaches, too. Thanks. Have a great day!

I've been awake for around 2 hours and I'm already starting to feel woozy.

I guess it all depends. If I have something to distract me, even if it's my own thoughts, I can stay awake for two days. Although it also depends on what I'm thinking of. If it's something that needs to be done and I'm excited about it most likely I can stay up for two days. I've had to stay up on odd hours just to get back on a regular shift. That actually goes for my fiance too. We do like to get off a normal schedule, although are trying to stay on the same schedule now...
