It seems Mexican druglord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman doesn't like life behind bars much.

Guzman is now complaining about his treatment after he was re-captured following last year's prison escape.

El Chapo's attorney said that his client told him guards wake him up every two hours, which he said feels like torture.

El Chapo said he's getting so little sleep that he says he "feels like zombie."

The druglord escaped prison through a tunnel last year and had help from prison workers.

 He was re-arrested last month and is now under close watch.

 Mexican officials said they'll eventually extradite Guzman to the U.S.
