The problems you will experience in your sleep will cause you to feel tense, sick and weak during the day. This will have a negative impact on your entire life. The National Sleep Association’s latest published Sleep Index study, 35 percent of adults considered to be inadequate sleep and 25 percent of respondents said they did not wake themselves renewed.
The 3 most common sleep disorders affecting adults and children are:
Sleep Disorder: Insomnia
Causes: High-stress level, certain medications, anxiety or depression.
Symptoms: Difficulty falling asleep and maintaining this sleep are the main symptoms. Not everyone is able to sleep some nights, but the problem of insomnia is chronic. According to experts, if a patient has been suffering from insomnia for at least 3 months, it can be diagnosed.
Treatment: Cognitive behavioral therapy and/or drug therapy is applied.
Sleep Disorder: Sleep Apnea
Causes: Total or partial obstruction of the throat.
Symptoms: All-day insomnia, headache in the morning and excessively loud snoring. Apnea causes your breathing to stop many times at night.
Treatment: The most common treatment for apnea is the use of a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) device. This machine applies constant and constant air pressure to the patient and keeps the upper airways closed during sleep.
Sleep Disorder: Restless Leg Syndrome
Reasons: Experts are not sure what caused it. They think it could be hereditary. In addition, some drugs can lead to restless leg syndrome.
Symptoms: Unrest can spread not only to the legs but also to the hands. It usually occurs at night or during rest periods. The patient can kick or move more than a hundred feet in just one night.
Treatment: Regular exercise is to reduce caffeine. In very serious cases, the drug can be used. The disease is more common in women and this problem can be seen in 10 percent of the population.
