What are some different types of sleep disorders and what are the main Symptoms? I can’t seem to sleep. I have done everything and yet I can’t sleep what the hell is wrong with me?🤒
Being chronically sleep-deprived has a detrimental effect on a person' health and cognitive abilities. A few of the better-known sleep disorders are Restless Leg Syndrome, Sleep Apnea, Insomnia, Narcolepsy, Nocturnal Periodic Limb Movement. Chronic pain can interfere with sleep, as can GERD and assorted other chronic conditions. Insomnia or trouble sleeping is a common side effect of dementia.

People may wake up with dry mouth/throat, scratchy throat, a headache, feeling groggy, or even out of sorts. Bedding may be disarrayed in morning or bed partner may complain of their partner was restless.

Narcolepsy can cause Excessive Daytime Sleepiness (EDS), cataplexy and other problems :unsure:

Insomnia can actually be of two types. For example, acute insomnia or sudden insomnia. The second is chronic. There are others, such as primary insomnia or sleep apnea for some reason. The other is insomnia for some reason, such as mental stress.
