Insomnia

Insomnia is a very common problem. It is estimated that 30-40% of the population experiences insomnia at certain points during their lives which may or may not require professional assistance. Ten percent of the population is estimated to experience chronic insomnia.

Insomnia symptoms and types

Insomnia isn't just an inability to fall asleep; it's more like an inability to sleep well. Insomnia includes one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty initiating sleep
  • Difficulty maintaining sleep
  • Waking too early in the morning

There are two main types, acute and chronic:

  • Short-term, or acute, insomnia is due to a temporary situation such as stress or jet lag. It is important to address the underlying cause (or to "wait it out" in the case of something like jet lag). Effective and safe prescription medications can help.

  • Long-term, or chronic, insomnia lasts for a month or longer. It is most often related to stress, anxiety, depression, or to poor sleep habits.

Help with insomnia

Insomnia can be frustrating to deal with. If you suffer from insomnia, please see your primary care physician, or you can schedule an appointment with us.

For help with mild sleep problems (less troublesome than insomnia), see our sleep tips page.
