How many days can you go without sleep?

    Many people wonder how long a person can go without sleep but the answer truly varies, depending on the person. You won’t die directly from insomnia, but more from a disease that occurs due to your weakened immune system.

    There have been people that have gone as long as eleven days without sleep. This is not normal and not healthy. As you lose sleep your thinking will suffer and your reflexes will slow down. At some point you will even start to hallucinate. Source:http://answers.ask.com/Health/Diseases/how_long_can_the_body_go_without_sleep

    Though it is possible to die from this, it is highly unlikely that anybodys body will allow them to get to that point! It varies from one person to the next, but the average human will/can experience fatigue, nausea, restlessness, and lightheadedness after 48 hours of no sleep! By the 72 hour mark, those symptoms can build up to audial, visual, and other basic sensory hallucinations! Though after roughly 96 hours of uninterrupted conciousness, the body will usually shut itself down, as a defense mechanism, or will begin to experience bouts of unconciousness! Whereas most people will fall asleep and stay asleep after 96 hours of no sleep, some people may fall asleep for a matter of moments and do this off and on until the body is recharged enough to stay awake for more than 5 minutes or so! The heart, brain, and lungs all are run by the medula oblongata, and without sleep, this part of the brain will reset the whole body to assess how much actual recooperative sleep is needed to maintain involuntary funtions! Of course, Im not a doctor, so what the hell do I know!
