Insomnia is a common sleep disorder that can make it hard to fall asleep, hard to stay asleep, or both. With insomnia, you often wake up not feeling restored or refreshed. The amount of sleep required each night varies from person to person. However, most adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night. Insomnia can be either acute, lasting one to several nights, or chronic, even lasting months to years. When insomnia lasts for longer than a month, it is considered chronic. While many people blame insomnia on stress or worry, insomnia can also be a symptom of another disease or condition such as pain, digestive problems or a sleep disorder, depression, or anxiety. Treatment of insomnia includes treating underlying causes and behavior therapy such as creating a sleep environment that promotes sleep, learning to develop positive thoughts and beliefs about sleep, and relaxation techniques. Medications are also available to treat insomnia.
