I tend to require a lot of sleep, is there any way that I could

Customer Question

I tend to require a lot of sleep, is there any way that I could sleep less, like I could sleep 10-12 hours easily without waking up at all.

What are the effects of polyphasic sleeping, is it worth practicing?

Actually I have reviewed all of your questions at this point and I am going to opt out.
This will alert all experts to your question, so they can jump in if desired.
Please do not post or it just comes back to me.

What is the reason on opting out on my question? The other questions are not related to medical practices, that's not very helpful is it...

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
Is is so other experts might help you.
The question is up on the open board when I opt out
When you post it takes it off the board.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yeah but what's the issue of assisting me? Why can't you assist me and must find someone else to do so?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
I am not familiar with polyphasic sleeping
So when I opt out other experts are alerted to the post.
As long as you do not post it is not locked back to me
