Insomnia

Insomnia is characterised by a persistent difficulty in falling asleep and/or staying asleep or sleep of poor quality that does not allow a person to feel refreshed the next morning.

 

The most common symptoms of insomnia are:

  • Difficulty falling asleep
  • Waking up during the night
  • Waking up early in the morning
  • Feeling irritable and tired and finding it difficult to function during the day

 

Your age, lifestyle, environment and diet all play a part in influencing the amount of sleep you need. Insomnia can occur at any age and can be short or long term. Insomnia can lead to memory problems, depression and irritability

 

There is usually no single cause of insomnia, but there are a number of factors that can contribute to you getting it, these are the main causes:

  • Psychological problems such as stress, anxiety, depression, grief or alcoholism.
  • Physical health problems such as pain, asthma or heart disease.
  • Medicines such as slimming medicines, antidepressants or medicines to treat high blood pressure.
  • Jet lag, a temporary condition that can cause disturbed sleep patterns, digestion problems and a lack of energy.
  • Environmental factors such as noise, an uncomfortable bed or being too hot or cold.
  • Lifestyle habits, for example not having a regular sleep routine, eating late at night, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol or using stimulants such as nicotine.
