Insomnia is a common disorder in which people have problems falling asleep or staying asleep. They may receive too little sleep, or they get poor quality sleep, but do not wake up refreshed. There are two main types of insomnia: acute and chronic. Acute insomnia is often caused by stress, family pressures, or other life changes. It can last for a day or weeks, or even months. Chronic insomnia is a different disorder and may occur as a result of long-term stress or medical condition.
Insomnia is a disorder of the brain that manifests as trouble falling asleep, waking up often during the night, or waking up too early in the morning. It has been associated with stress, anxiety, and depression. Dr. Vinit Niranjane treats insomnia by prescribing cognitive behavioral therapy along with sleep supplements to reverse it completely.
