What are the signs and symptoms of insomnia?
Many adults experience short-term insomnia which lasts from a few days to a couple weeks. It’s usually the result of stress or a traumatic event. Other people have long-term or chronic insomnia that lasts for a month or more.
- Symptoms of insomnia include:
- Difficulty falling asleep at night
- Waking up during the night
- Waking up too early
- Not feeling well-rested after a night’s sleep
- Daytime sleepiness
- Depression or anxiety
- Difficulty paying attention or focusing on tasks
- Increased errors or accidents
- Ongoing worries about sleep
If your insomnia is making it difficult for you to function throughout the day, a sleep therapist may be able to help. Maple’s registered sleep therapists are trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) — a leading method for treating insomnia without the use of medication.
What are common types of sleep disorders?
The most common sleep disorders include insomnia, sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome, REM Sleep Behaviour Disorder, and narcolepsy, but there are many more. Sleep therapy can help to identify and treat some of these conditions without medication.
How is insomnia diagnosed?
Every case of insomnia is unique. As a result, diagnoses can differ. It usually begins with a review of your sleeping habits, daytime sleepiness, and other important factors that might be influencing your sleep routine. A sleep study may be necessary if the cause of your insomnia remains unclear after preliminary tests, or if you are showing signs of another sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea or restless legs syndrome.
How is insomnia treated?
In many cases, simple changes to your sleep habits and CBT-I can ease you back into a healthy sleep cycle.
You can consult with highly skilled sleep therapists, trained in the delivery of CBT-I from the comfort of your home on Maple. Through these sessions our sleep therapists can provide you with advice and exercises to help bring your sleeping pattern back to normal without the use of medication.
