Sleep-Wake Disorders

What is it?

The inability to sleep sufficiently is referred to as insomnia. This sounds simple on the surface, but there are many different factors that can affect one’s ability to sleep. Sometimes, it’s simple jet lag. Other times, a stressful or traumatic experience could be the cause. Whatever the reason, figuring out the underlying contributors to insomnia is essential to getting life and health back under control.

Symptoms include:

  • Difficulty falling asleep at night
  • Waking up during the night
  • Waking up too early
  • Not feeling well-rested after a night’s sleep
  • Daytime tiredness or sleepiness
  • Irritability, depression or anxiety
  • Difficulty paying attention, focusing on tasks or remembering
  • Increased errors or accidents
  • Ongoing worries about sleep
