Insomnia Q&A

What is insomnia?

Insomnia is a sleep disorder often linked to other mental health challenges. It makes it nearly impossible to get quality sleep and wake up well-rested. Kimberly pinpoints the root cause of sleeping challenges to improve your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

What does insomnia look like?

The symptoms of insomnia often include:

  • Waking up feeling tired
  • Difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • Excessive daytime fatigue
  • Waking up frequently throughout the night
  • Snoring or gasping for air during sleep

Insomnia increases your risk of car accidents, other accidents, and falling asleep at work or school. Sleep deprivation also heightens your chance of weight gain, depression, and chronic diseases.

What are the risk factors for insomnia?

The risk factors for developing insomnia include a family history of insomnia, stress, and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). You might struggle to get a good night’s sleep because of a substance use disorder, drinking alcohol or caffeine late in the day, eating a large meal before going to bed, or going to bed hungry.

Hormone fluctuations, depression, and anxiety can also contribute to poor sleep quality. At other times, the cause of insomnia isn’t clear.

How is insomnia diagnosed?

Kimberly may recommend undergoing a polysomnogram (sleep study) to determine how well you sleep at night. She might also suggest this diagnostic test if she suspects you have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Kimberly also reviews your medical history, medications, and lifestyle habits. She completes a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation to screen you for mental health challenges that could contribute to insomnia.

How is insomnia treated?

The standard insomnia treatments include taking medication, making lifestyle changes, getting treated for sleep apnea, and psychotherapy (talk therapy) to help you overcome mental health challenges linked to insomnia.

You might wear an oral appliance while you sleep to keep your airway open. Setting a regular bedtime routine, sleeping in a cool, dark room, and practicing stress-reduction strategies can also help with insomnia. Get regular exercise, eat nutritious foods, avoid smoking, and don’t drink alcohol or have caffeine late in the day.

Kimberly follows up with you to make sure your insomnia treatment works as designed and offers therapy whenever needed to maximize your quality of life.

PSALM 23: 1-6

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
