Kinds of Insomnia

One of the first steps in treating insomnia is determining what kind of insomnia you have.

Insomnia Classifications

There are different classifications of insomnia.

* According to one classification, insomniacs can be divided into two groups:

  • People who can't fall in sleep when they go to bed
  • People who fall asleep readily but can't stay asleep
* Second classification system is based on how long the insomnia lasts:
  • Transient Insomnia - lasts just couple nights
  • Short-term insomnia - lasts more than three weeks
  • Chronic insomnia - lasts more than three weeks.
* Another classification sorts the causes of the insomnia into the following categories:
  • Psychological problems
  • Mental problems
  • Due to lifestyle
  • Poor sleep habits
  • Primary insomnia (one that has no definitive cause and is based on inherited factors)
