Difficulty sleeping is a condition that is characterized by sleeplessness and trouble to fall asleep at night. Depression, acute stress, anxiety, restless leg syndrome, headaches as well as low blood sugar levels can be the cause for sleep disorders. Thyroid disorders, drug abuse and other chronic illnesses can also cause sleep disorders.
HOW IS DIFFICULTY SLEEPING DIAGNOSED?
A general physician will analyse your medical history as well as check the medications you are presently consuming as some over-the counter prescription drugs can also cause sleeplessness. In order to determine the cause and course of treatment, the doctor may prescribe maintaining a sleep diary that records day’s activities and sleep habits along with the food and drinks consumed. A sleep study test may be scheduled if the doctor suspects other disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome or any other sleep based disorder.
HOW IS DIFFICULTY SLEEPING TREATED?
Treatment for sleeplessness depends on its cause. In some cases, at-home remedies or simple lifestyle changes can improve the quality of your sleep. In cases when a medical condition or sleep disorder is causing problems, the treatment for the underlying condition would be treated first. For example, if the sleep suffers because of an anxiety disorder or depression, the doctor may prescribe an antianxiety or antidepressant medication to help cope with worry, stress, and feelings of hopelessness. In some cases, a special type of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) designed for people with this disorder may be recommended.
