Sleep disorders
These are conditions that lead to changes in your daily normal sleep patterns.
A sleep disorder can have detrimental effects on one's safety, health, and quality of life. Sleep deprivation can increase the risk of developing additional health issues and impair one's ability to drive safely.

Anxiety disorders are characterized by symptoms such as excessive daytime lethargy, irregular respiration, and heightened movement during sleep. In addition, difficulty falling slumber and an irregular sleep-wake cycle are additional signs and symptoms.

A plethora of distinct sleep disorders exist. They are frequently classified into categories that provide explanations for their occurrence or impact. Sleep disorders can also be classified based on symptoms such as difficulty sleeping, distressing respiration patterns, irregular sleep-wake cycles, daytime sleepiness, or difficulty falling asleep.

The following are frequent forms of sleep disorders:

  • Anxiety characterized by persistent trouble falling asleep or remaining unconscious during the night.
  • Sleep apnea is characterized by irregular breathing patterns that occur during sleep. Multiple subtypes of sleep apnea exist.
  • RLS, or restless legs syndrome, is a sleep movement disorder. Restless legs syndrome, alternatively referred to as Willis-Ekbom disease, elicits an unpleasant sensation accompanied by a strong inclination to move the legs during slumber.
  • A condition typified by extreme daytime lethargy and abrupt onset of sleepiness is known as narcolepsy.

There are numerous methods for diagnosing sleep disorders. After a proper diagnosis, the majority of sleep disorders are typically effectively treatable by physicians..
Insomnia can be a primary problem or coexist with other problems. Chronic insomnia is frequently caused by stress, traumatic events, or sleep-disrupting habits.

Chronic insomnia is commonly caused by the following:

  • Stress. Worries about job, school, health, finances, or family can keep you awake at night, making it difficult to fall asleep. Stressful life events or traumas, such as the death or illness of a loved one, divorce, or job loss, can all contribute to insomnia.
  • Travel or work schedule. Your circadian rhythms serve as an internal clock, regulating your sleep-wake cycle, metabolism, and body temperature. Insomnia can result from disruptions to the body's circadian rhythms. The reasons could be a time zone change after a flight or working a night shift.
  • Poor sleeping patterns. Inadequate sleep habits include erratic bedtime patterns, stimulating activities before bed, an uncomfortable sleeping environment, and using the bed for work, eating, or watching television. Computers, televisions, video games, smartphones, and other displays used before bedtime might interrupt your sleep cycle.
  • Overeating late at night. A modest snack before bed is acceptable, but consuming too much can create physical discomfort when you go to bed. Many people suffer from heartburn, which is the backflow of acid and food from the stomach into the esophagus after dinner and can make it difficult to sleep.
  • Chronic insomnia may also be associated with a medical condition or the use of certain drugs.

Other prevalent causes of insomnia are:

  • Mental disorders. Anxiety disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, can interfere with sleep. Waking up too early can be indicative of depression. Insomnia is frequently associated with other mental health issues.
  • Other illnesses. Chronic pain, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), hyperactive thyroid, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease are all linked to sleeplessness.
  • Sleep-related problems. Sleep apnea causes intermittent breathing arrest during the night, which disrupts sleep. Restless legs syndrome causes leg discomfort and an almost overwhelming impulse to move them, making it difficult to fall asleep.
  • Coffee, nicotine, and alcohol. Coffee, tea, cola, and other caffeine-containing beverages are stimulants. Drinking them late in the evening or during the day can keep you awake at night. Nicotine in tobacco products is another stimulant that can disrupt sleep. Alcohol can help you fall asleep, but it interferes with deeper stages of sleep and frequently wakes you up in the middle of the night.
