More than 60% of adults in the UK report that they don’t get more than five hours of sleep at night. The reasons may include anything from extreme sleep disorders to a busy work schedule.
However, sleep plays an important role in keeping you fit and healthy. Good sleep helps recover your body from exhaustion and allows you to wake up fresh and ready for the next day. Lack of sleep, on the other hand, can significantly affect your daily activities and lead to serious physical and mental health problems.
Hence, it’s important to identify and treat any sleep disorders that you might have to avoid severe health conditions down the road.
Let’s look at some of the most common sleep disorders.
Insomnia refers to a sleep disorder where a person cannot stay asleep for long or have difficulty falling asleep. A common reason for this discomfort can be an illness. Or in other cases, it might be due to an increased level of stress, sadness, or disrupted mental well-being. However, sometimes, the reasons might not be so obvious. If you have difficulties falling asleep for more than three nights in a row, you should consider consulting your physician.
This sleep disorder occurs when you lose your ability to breathe easily because of a floppy, narrow throat. When a person has trouble breathing during their sleep, they may wake up abruptly several times during the night. This disruption can affect the sleep pattern and causes tiredness throughout the day.
Restless leg syndrome
This syndrome refers to a constant discomfort in a person’s legs. To stop the discomfort, the person keeps moving their legs. One of the reasons for restless legs is the lack of iron in the body.
The muscles we use to breathe may become less functional when we’re sleeping. This means that people with already weak breathing muscles may not be able to breathe properly during their sleep. Some common reasons for this may include obesity or lung disorders.
