5 Types of Sleep Disorders

Posted by Melissa Bamberg on

Everyone has trouble sleeping every now and then, but for many people sleep disorders are a part of their everyday lives. Has having trouble sleeping become a common occurrence? Read these five common types of sleep disorders to see if any symptoms sound familiar:

  1. Insomnia: The most common type of sleep disorder, insomnia keeps you from getting a healthy amount of sleep each night. Insomnia is typically caused by an underlying issue, such as stress, depression, anxiety, another health condition, or lifestyle choices. This condition can impact your mood, energy levels, and ability to properly function during the day.
  2. Sleep Apnea: A common sleep disorder causing you to temporarily stop sleeping due to blocked upper airways, causing you to wake up many times per hour. Most people with this condition don’t remember waking up multiple times per night, but often feel the effects of it throughout the day, as they’re exhausted, irritable, or depressed.
  3. Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS): This sleep disorder causes a nearly irresistible desire to move your legs or arms. This urge occurs when you’re resting or lying down and is typically caused by painful, tingly, or sore feelings.
  4. Narcolepsy: A sleep disorder causing you to feel excessive, overpowering tiredness during the daytime hours. Narcolepsy is caused by a disorder of the brain function that controls sleeping and waking up. If you’re impacted by this condition, you may experience “sleep attacks” at any time throughout the day, causing you to fall asleep at any time. Symptoms include seeing or hearing things and starting to dream before you’re fully sleep, losing control of your muscles when you are laughing or feeling strong emotions, having intense dreams, and/or feeling unable to move when you’re waking up or falling asleep.
  5. Jet Lag: This temporary disruption in sleep occurs when you travel across time zones. Common symptoms include drowsiness during the daytime, headaches, stomach issues, and insomnia. These symptoms typically appear a day or two after traveling across multiple time zones. Issues are typically worse for longer flights than those of a shorter duration.
