Insomnia

Definition

Insomnia is sign as well as symptom that can accompany several sleeps, medical and psychiatric disorders, characterized by persistent difficulty falling asleep and/or staying asleep or sleep of poor quality

It is defined as sleeping difficulties as termed by individual's report. This disorder can be demonstrated by polysomnographic evidence of disturbed sleep.

Insomnia can be grouped into primary and secondary, or comorbid

Primary insomnia: not attributable to a medical, psychiatric, or environmental cause

A diagnosis will usually differentiate between:

• insomnia as secondary to another condition,
• primary insomnia co-morbid with one or more conditions, or
• free-standing primary insomnia

Types of insomnia

Insomnia can be classified as transient, acute, or chronic.
1. Transient insomnia lasts for less than a week.
• Underlying another disorder
• changes in the sleep environment
• change in timing of sleep
• severe depression
• stress

Its consequences - sleepiness and impaired psychomotor performance - are similar to those of sleep deprivation.

2. Acute insomnia is the inability to consistently sleep well for a period of less than a month.

3. Chronic insomnia lasts for longer than a month.
• Underling another disorder
• Primary disorder.

Its effects can vary according to its causes.

• see things as if they are happening in slow motion
• moving objects seem to blend together
• Can cause double vision.

Various Patterns of insomnia

Sleep-onset insomnia -difficulty falling asleep at the beginning of the night, often a symptom of anxiety disorders or the delayed sleep phase disorder.

Nocturnal awakenings are characterized by difficulty returning to sleep after awakening in the middle of the night

Waking too early in the morning: middle-of-the-night insomnia (pain disorders or medical illness) and terminal insomnia (clinical depression).

Poor sleep quality

caused by the individual not reaching stage 3 or delta sleep which has restorative properties
• restless legs
• sleep apnea
• Major depression
• Nocturnal polyuria.(excessive urination at night)

Major depression leads to alterations in the function of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, causing excessive release of cortisol which can lead to poor sleep quality.
