What Is Insomnia?

Insomnia is a common sleep disorder characterized by persistent difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or obtaining restorative sleep, despite the opportunity for adequate rest. It can manifest as acute insomnia, triggered by stress or specific life events and lasting for a short duration, or chronic insomnia, which persists for months or longer, often linked to underlying issues. The repercussions of insomnia are felt beyond the night, influencing energy levels, mood, and day-to-day performance and well-being.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Insomnia 

  • Difficulty Falling Asleep: Spending a long time in bed before sleep comes, even when tired or outright exhausted.
  • Trouble Staying Asleep: Experiencing frequently waking up or a significant awakening with difficulty returning to sleep.
  • Waking Up Too Early: Finding oneself awake hours earlier than desired with an inability to resume sleeping.
  • Non-Restorative Sleep: Feeling unrefreshed after a full night's sleep, leading to daytime fatigue and tiredness.
  • Daytime Symptoms: Including but not limited to, fatigue, sleepiness, irritability, mood disturbances, concentration or memory issues, and a higher risk of mistakes or accidents.
  • Worry About Sleep: Anxiety related to sleep, such as concern over the consequences of poor sleep and stress about the ability to sleep, can exacerbate the problem.

You should be able to differentiate occasional sleep disturbances from chronic insomnia, which is diagnosed based on the persistence of symptoms at least three nights a week for over three months and may be related to other health conditions.

How is Insomnia Treated and When Should You Go To the Doctor?

Effective treatment for insomnia starts with a thorough evaluation, which might include a detailed medical and sleep history assessment and, in some instances, a sleep study. Treatment strategies include:

  • Medical Treatments: Short-term use of prescription sleep aids, with a focus on minimizing dependency risks.
  • Non-Medical Treatments: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is particularly effective, addressing the mental and behavioral aspects contributing to insomnia. Adjustments to lifestyle and the sleep environment also play a crucial role in managing insomnia.

If you're experiencing persistent trouble with sleep, affecting your daily life and well-being, seeking professional advice from BCB Therapy is recommended. Early intervention can significantly improve your sleep quality and, by extension, your overall health.
