Types of Sleep Disorders
There are a variety of sleep disorders. One of the most common types of sleep disorders is insomnia. Some forms of insomnia exist independently while other forms of insomnia are due to another health condition, such as depression, anxiety, stress, or pain. Some symptoms of insomnia include:
- Difficulty falling asleep
- Pattern of waking in the night or too early
- Feeling sleep-deprived
- Difficulty concentrating
- Memory problems
- Tension headaches
- Stomach aches or other gastrointestinal symptoms
- Depression or anxiety
Another common sleep disorder is characterized by a person being unable to move their respiratory muscles or being able to breathe properly during sleep. They stop breathing for several seconds while they are sleeping. Individuals who have sleep apnea may be affected in the following ways:
- Fatigue throughout the day
- Falling asleep while completing other activities
- Increased risk of heart attacks, heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure
