A – Z of Health – ‘I’ for Insomnia

If you suffer from insomnia, this means you regularly have problems sleeping. You may have difficulty falling asleep, or staying asleep as long as you want to. This is different from the lack of sleep caused by having to get up regularly to carry out your caring responsibilities, for instance; it is about those times you have every opportunity to sleep but just can’t. However, this can be even more of a problem if both insomnia and night time caring are preventing you from getting the sleep you need.
