What Are Sleep Disorders?
The term “sleep disorders” describes a number of different conditions that affect either your ability to fall asleep or the quality of sleep you experience.
While all of us have experienced the occasional disrupted night or bout of insomnia, a sleeping disorder describes having difficulties with sleep on a regular basis and the impact this has on your day-to-day life, along with your overall health and wellbeing.
Insomnia is a condition where you find it hard to fall asleep or stay asleep. It can be caused by a wide range of factors, including jet lag, chronic or acute stress, or changes in your hormone levels — for example, if you are a woman going through menopause.
It can be described as:
- Chronicif it occurs regularly over the course of a month
- Intermittent if it happens just once in a while
- Transientif it happens for a few nights only
As we’ve seen, by night, the symptoms will be an inability to get to sleep or stay asleep. By day, sufferers are likely to experience fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and may also gain weight.
