Insomnia
« on: August 14, 2019, 09:15:58 pm »

Insomnia is a sleep disorder. The primary symptoms are problems falling asleep and staying asleep. Someone with insomnia may find that it takes them a long time to fall asleep, or they wake up often during the night. Waking too early in the morning can be a sign of insomnia, as can feeling tired when waking up or throughout the day. Certain strategies can be used to overcome or cope with its effects without medication.

There are two types of insomnia. One is primary insomnia, and the other is secondary insomnia. Primary insomnia is when someone has sleep problems unrelated to another issue, whether physical or mental.

Secondary insomnia indicates someone has problems sleeping because of another condition, such as depression or maybe because of a medication or substance they use.

Another way to characterize insomnia is whether it’s acute or chronic. Acute insomnia is short-term while chronic is ongoing. Acute insomnia may be one night or it can last for weeks. When someone has insomnia at least three nights a week for a minimum of a month, it’s considered chronic.

It’s fairly normal to experience acute insomnia from time to time. Factors that contribute to temporary insomnia can include jet lag, stress, situational factors or diet. When the problem is ongoing and not due to an identifiable temporary situation, it may require treatment.

People with chronic insomnia are at risk for complications including serious health conditions. According to the National Institute for Health, insomnia can increase the risk of physical and mental conditions including:
  • Stroke
  • Weakened immune system
  • Inflammation
  • Obesity
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
Research shows insomnia can even shorten your life expectancy. Sleeping too little increases the risk of premature death by 12 percent in research cited by the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health.

These factors can make it understandable that you might explore how to overcome insomnia and how to fight insomnia.

Along with specific medical conditions, chronic insomnia can lower your quality of life. It can lead to challenges at work or in relationships, and it may diminish your level of functionality, day to day.
