Everyone has had a sleepless night occasionally, at first we don’t think much of the sleepless nights but soon our bodies begin to warn us of the dangers of restlessness. Sleep is a vital component in our ongoing health and well-being. Sleep’s restorative cycle gives the body the time it needs to rest and regenerate so that our bodies can continue to function on a daily basis. Those with normal sleep patterns, take for granted the far reaching benefits of a good night’s sleep.
Understanding different types of sleep disorders
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
This is a neurological disorder that causes people to experience unpleasant and uncontrollable sensations in the legs which cause an overwhelming urge to move them, sometimes thrashing about.
Sleepwalking is characterized by someone performing a series of complex actions such as walking and making audible noises whilst they are still completely asleep. Sufferers can appear clumsy and confused and usually have their eyes wide open.
The person appears awake whilst having a vivid waking nightmare in which the person is inconsolable. They often occur in children and in adults where other stressors like PTSD are present.
Habitual sleeplessness persisting for more than 24 hours. It can be termed as “episodic”, happening sporadically, or it can be “short-term” meaning it lasts for up to 3 weeks or it can be chronic.
