Insomnia plagues millions of Americans. While the condition is common, an accurate diagnosis of the root problem can be elusive. What’s worse, insomnia and the resulting poor sleep can be devastating, negatively affecting every aspect of your health.
Insomnia: Getting a Diagnosis
Have you had trouble falling asleep or staying asleep the whole night? Your symptoms probably seem to point to insomnia, but the only way to know for sure is to get a diagnosis.
Insomnia is a sleep disorder where people have trouble sleeping. They may have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep as long as desired. Insomnia is typically followed by daytime sleepiness, low energy, irritability, and a depressed mood. Insomnia can be short-term, lasting for days or weeks, or long-term, lasting more than a month.
When you’re not sleeping well, your entire life is affected. You may feel unfocused, tired all the time, or just have a lingering sense that you’re not at your best. Many people dealing with anxiety or increased stress in their lives suffer from a difficulty falling asleep. Since the brain is constantly learning new behaviors, what begins as a temporary bout of insomnia can become a chronic condition after the mind becomes accustomed to lacking sleep.
Types of insomnia:
Short-term or acute insomnia symptoms last for less than 3 months. About 15% to 20% of people have this type of insomnia.
Chronic insomnia symptoms happen at least three times a week for at least 3 months. About 10% of people have this type.
If some or all of these things apply to you, you may have insomnia that our at-home test can diagnose:
It takes you more than 30 minutes to fall asleep.
You wake up during the night and have trouble falling back asleep.
Your sleep is unrefreshing or you wake up feeling groggy or tired.
You feel fatigued, moody, or worn out during the day.
Too little sleep causes problems at work, school, or other parts of your daily life.
Your sleep problems can't be explained by another sleep disorder like sleep apnea, a medical condition, or a medicine you take.
