Insomnia(Sleeplessness)-overview


Definition:

Insomnia is defined as difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep, or both, despite adequate opportunity and time to sleep, leading to impaired daytime functioning. Insomnia may be due to poor quality or quantity of sleep.

Insomnia is very common and occurs in 30% to 50% of the general population. Approximately 10% of the population may suffer from chronic (long-standing) insomnia.

Insomnia affects people of all ages including children, although it is more common in adults and its frequency increases with age. In general, women are affected more frequently than men.

Insomnia may be divided into three classes based on the duration of symptoms.

Insomnia lasting one week or less may be termed transient insomnia;

short-term insomnia lasts more than one week but resolves in less than three weeks; and

long-term or chronic insomnia lasts more than three weeks.

Insomnia can also be classified based on the underlying reasons for insomnia such as sleep hygiene, medical conditions, sleep disorders, stress factors, and so on.

It is important to make a distinction between insomnia and other similar terminology; short duration sleep and sleep deprivation.

Short duration sleep may be normal in some individuals who may require less time for sleep without feeling daytime impairment, the central symptom in the definition of insomnia.

In insomnia, adequate time and opportunity for sleep is available, whereas insleep deprivation, lack of sleep is due to lack of opportunity or time to sleep because of voluntary or intentional avoidance of sleep

"I can't sleep!" These three words can explain nights of restless anguish for those who suffer from insomnia. An occasional night without much sleep is normal, but when it continues night after night, a vicious cycle can begin that can be exhausting and extremely frustrating.

Insomnia is not defined by the number of hours you sleep every night. The amount of sleep a person needs varies. While most people need between 7 and 8 hours of sleep a night, some people do well with less, and some need more. But, if you feel that you do not get satisfying sleep, you may have insomnia, a sleep disorder.
Sleep is very essential for the well-being of mind and body. Not only does sleep provide needed time for rest to restore energy and allow the body to renew itself, but your mind needs sleep as well, in order to process the events and stresses of the previous day and to dream. An untreated sleep disorder can lead to a form of psychosis, with delusions and hallucinations. It can also reduce your daytime productivity by affecting co-ordination, reaction time, judgement, also can increase your risk of accidents, and put you at risk for illness and even early death
