Insomnia, Sleep Disorders and Related Issues

Within the domain of Sleep Disorders and Related Issues, our services are dedicated to addressing the complexities of sleep-related challenges.

1. Insomnia and Sleep Problems:

Insomnia and Sleep Problems is integral to our commitment to mental health. Insomnia is characterized by difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up too early, despite having the opportunity for adequate sleep. It can be acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term) and is often accompanied by daytime impairment or distress.

2. Sleep Apnea:

Sleep Apnea: Sleep apnea is a disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or shallow breaths during sleep. This interruption in breathing can lead to fragmented sleep, excessive daytime sleepiness, and other health problems. The two main types of sleep apnea are obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea (CSA).

Sleep Problems:

Getting enough quality sleep is vital for your physical and mental well-being. If you struggle with persistent sleep problems, it’s essential to recognize the signs and seek professional guidance. Watch out for these red flags: difficulty falling asleep, frequent awakenings during the night, feeling unrested even after sleep, daytime sleepiness, snoring, or irregular breathing patterns during sleep.

About 10-25% of the individuals have insomnia at a point in time. It is important to seek treatment for insomnia early as when the problem becomes more protracted, it is harder to nip it in the bud. It is important for clinicians to be able to accurately identify the root cause of sleep dysfunction in individual patients in order to optimise treatment. In many cases, a combination of behavioural and lifestyle interventions can solve the problem. About 10% of cases may rely on hypnotics to sleep well.

These issues could point to an underlying sleep disorder. To improve your sleep, start with good sleep hygiene practices (consistent bedtime, dark and quiet environment), but if problems continue, reach out to a doctor or sleep specialist. They can help diagnose any sleep disorders and create a treatment plan for healthier, more restful
