What happens when you don't sleep for 3-4 days?

I would like to know what will happen to your body if you are deprived of sleep for 3-4 days. Also, I would like to know if a person will see things. Plus I would like to know what EXACTLY happens to your mental state and will I show psychotic behavior in any way?

    Generally, lack of sleep may result in: aching muscles, blurred vision, clinical depression, colorblindness, daytime drowsiness and naps, excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS)

    decreased mental activity and concentration, depersonalization/derealization...

    weakened immune system, dizziness, dark circles under the eyes, fainting, general confusion, hallucinations (visual and auditory), hand tremors, headache, hyperactivity, hypertension, impatience, irritability, lucid dreaming (once sleep resumes), memory lapses or loss, nausea, nystagmus (rapid involuntary rhythmic eye movement)...

    psychosis-like symptoms, pallor, slowed reaction time, slurred and/or nonsensical speech, sore throat, stuffy nose, weight loss or gain, severe yawning...

    symptoms similar to:

    -Attention-deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

    -alcoholic intoxication

    I hope this is enough to dissuade you from staying awake for longer than 24 hours.

    Problem Solving/Critical Thinking Skills affected considerably

    Mood Swings

    Forced Sleep (mind will kinda force you into sleep)

    High Blood Pressure

    *You may show some signs of psychotic behavior but most likely not.

    I am thinking your body will sleep if you want it to or not. I know recently I had an occasion I had to be awake for about 24 hours and it was difficult. After 24 hours or that is how it was for me if you get still you will be asleep.
