When people have trouble sleeping, they may believe that they are suffering from insomnia. While insomnia is a common condition, the only way to know for sure whether you suffer from it or have simply had a bad night’s sleep is to undergo a sleep study.
Review these symptoms to help you determine if you are suffering from true insomnia.
Lying awake at night, tossing and turning, and staring at the alarm clock are all symptoms of true insomnia. It may take you more than an hour to fall asleep, and you may feel restless and frustrated during that time, especially if you are physically tired.
You may struggle to get comfortable, or find that you can’t seem to shut your brain off, despite your tiredness.
If you wake up multiple times during the night, you may be suffering from insomnia. You may wake up every hour, or you may wake up too early and be unable to go back to sleep.
Frequent trips to the bathroom because you’ve awaken may also be a symptom.
Some people wake up in the morning feeling as tired as they did when they went to bed. Being tired, groggy, grumpy, or cranky during the day are symptoms of insomnia, not just a poor night’s sleep.
You may even see a decline in your work performance, or you may be unable to accomplish the tasks that you need to for a successful day.
When you sleep but don’t rest, your body and mind don’t rejuvenate as well as they should. You may be getting the recommended 8 hours of sleep—or maybe even more—but you still don’t feel refreshed and renewed. Poor quality sleep of any duration is a sign of insomnia.
Insomnia can be an incredibly frustrating disorder for those who suffer from it. The inability to sleep interferes with not only your ability to function normally throughout the day, but also with your overall health.
Insomnia occurs in a variety of types and forms, and each may have differing causes. Some of the most common causes of insomnia include:
Anticipation of an upcoming event, such as your wedding or birth of a baby, for example, can keep you up at night for a few weeks to several months.
Other types of stress, such as pressure at work, marital trouble, or the loss of a loved one, are more negative and may produce more severe insomnia if not dealt with properly.
If you think that depression may be the root of your insomnia, you should consider visiting a sleep center to discover the best course of treatment.
If you have recently developed trouble sleeping after beginning a new medication, you may want to speak with your prescribing physician about alternative drugs or additional medications that can alleviate this side effect.
In some cases, the cause of insomnia is idiopathic or unknown. The best way to determine what’s causing your sleeping trouble is to schedule a sleep study at an accredited sleep disorder facility like Zeeba Sleep Center.
