Insomnia Definition

Definition

Insomnia is a poor quality sleep. This may mean a lack of sleep or difficulty staying asleep. Some have trouble falling asleep, or problems waking in the middle of the night or very early in the morning. It may be characterized as:

  • Transient—lasts from a single night to a few weeks
  • Intermittent or short term—episodes of transient insomnia occur from time to time
  • Chronic—if it occurs on most nights and lasts a month or more; this form usually needs treatment
