It is claimed that the saint suffered from sleep apnea, insomnia, and epileptic seizures.

Shourie even tallies his assumptions with accounts from 19th-century Bengal that reported that the saint displayed signs of unconsciousness, restricted breathing, total paralysis, and frenzied behavior—all the irrefutable symptoms of chronic sleeplessness.
