Back Pain and Bad Sleep

MBBS, MD - Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Pain Management Specialist, Jaipur
Back Pain and Bad Sleep

Pain related sleep disruption has affected a large number of people around the globe. Statistics has it that, in India, about 25% of the population suffers from pain-related sleep deprivation. Studies call it ‘the vicious cycle of pain and sleep’ as pain affects your ability to sleep and lack of sleep makes the pain even worse.

Back pain and arthritis are examples of some common pain-related medical disorders. People with these types of chronic pains have reported persistent sleeplessness or have had immense trouble falling asleep.

The following are the primary sleep disorders associated with chronic pain:

  1. Insomnia: It is a medical condition that is characterized by an inability to fall asleep no matter how physically exhausted you are. Insomnia can be acute (lasting for one night to a week) or chronic (that lasts for more than 3 weeks).
  2. Hypersomnia: It is a condition wherein you tend to sleep excessively; in this condition, you will have trouble being awake throughout the day or can fall asleep at any point of time.
  3. Sleep Apnoea: This is a sleep disorder wherein breathing pauses and resumes repeatedly. Risk factors include obesity, age and gender; it is more commonly observed in men. This condition can be chronic with symptoms such as snoring loudly or feeling very tired even after one has had a night’s sleep.
  4. Restless leg syndrome: It is a sleep disorder wherein you continuously move your legs while sleeping. However, this condition can also cause you to move your legs even if you aren’t sleeping.

Some of the causes of sleep disorders due to chronic pain are:

  1. Pain
  2. Worry and anxiety
  3. Sweating at night
  4. Depression and other mental disorders

Treatment

A pain and sleep disorder should be simultaneous as both the components of it, pain and sleep, are interrelated. Some of the ways people with chronic pain can still have a good night’s sleep are:

  • Limiting caffeine intake
  • Abstaining from alcohol and smoking, as these disrupt the sleep cycles, thus aggravating the existing pain.
  • Practicing meditation and other relaxation techniques
  • Pain killers or sleeping pills can be administered, but only with the doctor’s advice.
  • Hot water fomentation over painful area during night, for better sleep.

There is some unfinished business in her life and these will come up seeking a resolution. There must be something related to fear from childhood. Sometimes the content of the speech can be indicative. She needs to talk about her feelings and meet a counselor in this regard. If she expresses herself, especially emotionally, she will be fine soon.

Difficulty in falling asleep can be due to overactive mind or anxiety. Avoid smartphone or computer use especially after 8 pm. Listen to melodious music. Yoga and meditation can help.

A reasonable working definition of insomnia could therefore be: a complaint of difficulty in initiating and/or main­taining satisfying sleep. Insomnia is one of those conditions where there is immense variation in the sort of problem that it causes. There may be difficulty falling asleep, difficulty stay­ing asleep, waking early, or just feeling unrefreshed. And of course, there can be secondary effects, such as daytime fatigue, poor concentration and irritability. Homeopathy can often make a big difference to people suffering from insomnia. The approach is to consider the sleep disturbance as part of the overall clinical picture. There is no such thing as a homeopathic sleeping tablet, just as there is no such thing as a homeopathic painkiller. The well-selected remedy, if it includes the pattern of the sleep disturbance, may solve the problem. Consult online for the homeopathic treatment.

Please note that you are not sleeping in a well ventilated room it seems. Please sleep in well-ventilated room. Also make of habit of doing morning walk/exercises daily for 40 minutes. Do not take foods that take much time to digest - take a balance diet always. If there is any nasal polyp/narrow nasal cavity that needs proper treatment.

It may be some benign non cancerous growth on your abdomen due to excercising or some fat or muscle deposits, get yourself examined once to rule out any other problem, for that you would need to visit us.

I always have a habit of sleeping late right from my schooling days. I find it very difficult to sleep at least till 3-4 pm and then even after sleeping I don't sleep quickly there are always some thought on my mind even though I don't want to think about them and sleep. So I actually have a good sleep in the morning till 10 after that everyone disturbs so I get by 10: 30. Throughout the day I feel lethargic and unable to study continuously I always have to take breaks frequently. I was not worried about all this until graduation as I was very much social those days do I had a habit of late night party. But now my social interaction Is very less so little worried. I do one hour of gym alternate days to keep myself fit. Is everything normal or is there anything that needs change. If yes then how and what should be done?

Hi Lybrate-user You should have proper sleep hygiene. Sleep at same time daily. Bed is only for sleep and romance only do not use your bed as a workstation set the room temp at 70 degrees farenheit avoid tea and coffee after 4 pm do not watch crime movies, watch comedy programs which will increase your feel good hormones ideally 8- 9 hrs sleep is needed No problem in taking an afternoon nap lack of proper sleep is the trigger factor for chronic lifestyle diseases do not use medications for sleep
