Insomnia is a sleep disorder in which a person has trouble falling asleep, staying asleep or having inadequate sleep. Insomnia is not about how many number of hours of sleep a person gets or how long it takes to fall asleep, as this varies with each individual.
Having difficulty in sleeping can have a huge impact on the sufferer’s day-to-day functioning. Symptoms of insomnia include;
- Excessive sleepiness
- Lack of concentration
- Difficulty in thinking clearly
- Depression and anxiety
Insomnia is not uncommon though. It is thought that 30 to 40 per cent of people have some level of insomnia in any given year. It can strike people at any age, although it occurs more frequently in people over the age of 60.
