SLEEP OR INSOMNIA

Sleep or Insomnia Treatment in Phoenix

What is Insomnia?


Insomnia is a sleep disorder that is characterized by difficulty falling and/or staying asleep. It can be caused by psychiatric and medical conditions, unhealthy sleep habits, specific substances, and/or certain biological factors. 

Symptoms include:

  • Difficulty falling asleep
  • Waking up often during the night and having trouble going back to sleep
  • Waking up too early in the morning
  • Problems with concentration or memory
  • Irritability
  • Feeling tired upon waking

Acute vs. Chronic Insomnia

 Acute insomnia can last from one night to a few weeks. Insomnia is called chronic when a person has insomnia at least three nights a week for a month or longer.

 

Causes of Insomnia

  • Depression and/or anxiety
  • Chronic stress
  • Pain or discomfort at night
  • Significant life stress (job loss or change, death of a loved one, divorce, moving)
  • Illness
  • Emotional or physical discomfort
  • Environmental factors like noise, light, or extreme temperatures (hot or cold) that interfere with sleep.
  • Some medications (for example those used to treat colds, allergies, depression, high blood pressure, and asthma) may interfere with sleep.
  • Interferences in normal sleep schedule (jet lag or switching from a day to night shift, for example)

If you have trouble sleeping on a regular basis, it’s a good idea to review your health and think about whether any underlying medical issues or sleep disorders could be contributing to your sleep problems.
