Insomnia is a common condition that affects most people at one time or another in their lives. It’s not uncommon to have insomnia with situational stress, loss of a loved one, or after a traumatic experience. Usually it is a transient condition that improves after some time. In some people, however, insomnia can become a chronic condition that may need help in diagnosing the causes and treatments. Some conditions like Restless Leg Syndrome are treated with medications. At other times, it requires a change in one’s sleeping habits or schedule and sometimes another problem like sleep apnea can cause awakenings and difficulty maintaining sleep. A complete evaluation can help to identify the causes and help with directing treatment and improving your sleep quality.
