Insomnia And The Major Causes

Author: EMMA WANJIKU

Insomnia is a condition that has been described not a disease but rather a symptom.  It indicates that something is wrong in the body and should not be taken lightly. When you fail to initiate sleep or maintain it, this will be called insomnia. Also, if you can neither initiate nor maintain the sleep, you will be suffering from the same. There are several kinds or types of this condition and according to statistics; women will tend to suffer more. There are three kinds of insomnia and they are explained below.

First, there is transient insomnia. This kind will affect people for days and even weeks. It is caused by a host of factors that include change of sleeping environment to severe depression and stress. The second kind is acute insomnia. Those that have this kind of problem will tend to suffer from 3 weeks to six months. They will consistently notice that they are not sleeping well. Then, there is the most severe kind which is the chronic insomnia. Sufferers will have it for years and it will be caused by a myriad of factors.

This chronic condition is able to cause people to live in their own reality. Double visions and things moving in slow motion is the aftermath. It is good to have an idea of some of the top factors that cause this condition. The following are the known causes that will see you lack sleep mildly to a chronic stage. The first notorious cause is the use of drugs and stimulants. These drugs might include medications, herbs, caffeine, cocaine, ephedrine, amphetamines, methylphenidate, MDMA, methamphetamine and modafinil.

Antibiotics have also been seen to make the condition worse and lead to chronic cases. Also, Restless Leg Syndrome has also been seen to spark anxiety and cause lack of sleep or poor sleep. This condition will see the leg move and it can be very difficult to fall asleep in this condition. If you are suffering from pain no matter the cause, you will tend to lack sleep. Pain will see to it that you do not get the right rest that is necessary for your body and soul.

Hormonal imbalance is also a culprit with this regard. Women will tend to lack sleep when the hormones are acting up preceding periods as well as during menopause season. Other causes worth a mention are anxiety, stress, fear, mental and emotional tension, unfulfilled sex life and the list goes on. These issues will gravely eat into the mind and subconscious and an individual will not be able to rest. On the list of disorders, the following have been rife in those who lack sleep.

There are mental disorders like bipolar disorder, clinical depressions, post traumatic stress disorders, schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorders and many others. These are very serious conditions that will be responsible for the absence of quality sleep in those that suffer. Hazards of sleep like noise, foul smell and the like are also known to cause this problem. Health conditions like hyperthyroidism and rheumatoid arthritis have been seen to be notorious causes as well. There are so many other health conditions and independent factors that are linked to lack of sleep.

      There are the drugs that were developed to treat sleep disorders (usually these will be the first choice for most patients) These are classified as sedative hypnotics:

      Examples:
      Lunesta
      Ambien

      Then there are the Benzodiazipines:

      Examples:
      Valium
      Klonipin
      Xanax
      Halcion

      Then there are some cases where the old tricyclic antidepressants are used as off label treatment for sleep disorders in low doses:

      Nortryptyline
      Ametriptyline

      Then in some cases anti-emetics and antihistamines can be used:

      Examples:
      Diphenyhydramine
      Promethazine

      Then, if the root cause is sleep apnea, then that is a whole different ball of wax and will require an oxygen tent apparatus that the patient has to sleep with.

    How to help with insomnia?
    A friend of mine thinks she has insomnia, and I was wondering if there are any ways or things to do or eat that would help with going to sleep. Anything but drugs, or prescriptions that you can get addicted to.

    Example: Would taking a shower before bed help?
    Listing to music?
    Things like that, or maybe eating bananas or something before going to bed.

    Thanks for the help!

      I have had insomnia for about 5 months now, and i started to take a few drops of bach’s rescue remedy every night. i dont know if it will help your friend, because it is homeopathic, but its worth a try! the only thing is that it is expensive.
      it helped me a little bit.
      also,
      remember to tell your friend that she is not the only person who has insomnia, so she doesn’t have to feel like she is crazy.

    Is there a way to induce insomnia without medical overdoses or other drugs?
    I read a list of 6 things that cause insomnia (Emotional distress, substance abuse, biological body clock disturbance, environmental factors, health-problems, and pre-bedtime activities). The only things that could possibly apply to me right now are the body clock and somewhat health-problems (I have asthma, which is said to become an increasingly accepted cause) but I haven’t had asthmatic problems in a while… Would exercising every night for a bit actually work?

    Sleeping is just taking too much out of me. With AP classes all over the place, I could be doing something much more productive than sleeping. Sometimes I really do want to study but my body just refuses to let me and I fall asleep. I always wake up so mad at myself too. I’m also worried that I won’t do too well on my AP exams… Now, I know the whole “sleep is good it helps you concentrate” thing, blah blah blah, but what good is sleeping for a test if I don’t know the required material?

    I have a bunch of friends that are insomniacs and they’re perfectly fine… All I want to do is adjust my body clock a bit so that it I can do as much as I can at home.

    • Izzie says:

      Well you should just try to go to bed later than you’re used to and that should simply adjust your body clock.It will take about 3 or 4 days.Exercising isn’t so great.It could actually make you fall asleep faster.Good luck.

    Questions about mixing drugs (not for street use)?
    I have general anxiety and insomnia. For the longest time I’ve been smoking only enough marijuana to relax me and help me sleep. The thing is, I’m starting school soon (University), so I decided to go to my doctor about the problem, instead of continuing my drug use. My doctor gave me Clonazepam 1MG (for the anxiety) and Triazolam 0.125MG (for the insomnia). So, how dangerous is it to continue smoking, like, one joint a day while taking these drugs? I have depression too, which marijuana is a miracle drug for, and I don’t want to add antidepressants to my list of drugs… I’m just afraid of addiction.

    So here are my options, starting with my number one to what I’d rather not do. Pick one, or submit your own…..
    1. Take the pills as your doctor ordered (no more or no less), but smoke 1 – 2 joints a day, it can’t hurt…
    2. Clonazapam and Triazolam are a bad mix… You’d be better off just smoking pot…
    3. Quit the pot right away! But keep taking the pills if you need them. Ask your doctor for antidepressants…
    4. Clonazapam and Trizolam suck!!! Try these instead…

    If you can think of ANY OTHER information or advice that might help, please share it. I know nothing about these and I don’t want to harm myself. You can tell I don’t want to give up marijuana, but if you think it’s best then I will in a flash…. So, any help? Someone with experience with these drugs, preferably, or a doctor :) thanks!!!

    And if you don’t mind, could you tell me why you picked that option?
