There are mainly two types of insomnia which are classified based on how often it attacks and how long it lasts. In general, insomnia that lasts for a short period i.e., for one night to few weeks is known as acute insomnia, and insomnia is lasting for long, i.e., for three nights to one month then it is termed as chronic insomnia.
Stress, physical discomfort, environmental factors like noise, bright light, extreme temperatures which interfere sleep, some medications which treat allergies, cold, depression, high blood pressure, asthma also interferes sleep. Sometimes a change in lifestyle also acts a reason for insomnia if the normal schedule for sleep changes due to work or jet lag.
If you are suffering from acute insomnia, then it can be treated by following natural sleep remedies like relaxation exercises, healthy thinking, and slight lifestyle changes. Even if the problem persists after following natural sleep aids, then consult a neurologist for treatment. The doctor may ask you to take a sleep test examining the factors like how much time you are taking to sleep, after how many minutes you are getting distracted from sleep, etc. Based on this, the neurologist may suggest you specific medication as a cure.
