Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterised by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or by waking up too early and being unable to fall back asleep. Insomnia can be acute, lasting for a short period of time, or chronic, lasting for several weeks or months.


Insomnia can be caused by a variety of factors, including stress, anxiety, depression, certain medical conditions, or medications. Symptoms of insomnia may include difficulty falling asleep, waking up frequently during the night, waking up too early in the morning, feeling tired or unrefreshed upon waking, and difficulty concentrating during the day.


Treatment for insomnia may involve addressing any underlying medical or psychological conditions, practicing good sleep hygiene, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, and creating a comfortable sleep environment. Additionally, medications or therapy may be recommended to help manage symptoms and promote better sleep.


If you are experiencing insomnia, it’s important to seek medical attention to determine the underlying cause and receive appropriate treatment, as untreated insomnia can lead to other health problems, including fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and a weakened immune system.
