If you toss and turn throughout the night, unable to find decent rest, you’re not alone. Recent surveys indicate that up to 40% of adults experience insomnia in a given year, making it the most common sleep complaint in the United States. Its most common symptoms are the inability to fall asleep at bedtime or stay asleep during the night, which often causes drowsiness and fatigue the following day.
Insomnia can be:
- acute (lasting just a few days)
- chronic (lasting a month or longer)
- connected to another health condition
- aggravated by stress or anxiety
- triggered by a disruption in your daily routines (such as travel or a changing work schedule).
