Primary or Secondary?
According to WebMD, Insomnia is a sleep disorder that is characterized by difficulty falling or staying asleep. Depending on the causality of the disorder, you can have primary insomnia (no outside cause) or secondary insomnia. Secondary just means that it is caused by something else, such as depression, or substance abuse. At a Sleep Apnea Center near you, they can help determine the possible causes of your insomnia and will help you in dealing with these issues in the future.
With roughly 35 % of Americans claiming to have “poor” sleep quality, SleepFoundation.org, and 13 % of all cases going undiagnosed, you may be wondering if you too suffer from a sleep disorder. There can be cases of Acute Insomnia which don’t last very long and normally come from secondary causes. Most people suffering from insomnia will fall into this category. Chronic Insomnia can be much worse and might ail you for three nights out of a week and last for longer than a month at a time. The most healing time for the human condition is the time we spend in REM sleep, Chronic Insomnia and sleep apnea can affect your health in some very negative ways by keeping you from reaching that stage of deep sleep.
