Do you feel tired during the day? This may be caused by a sleep disorder . Perhaps you know that, for example, you sleep too much, or wake up very often during the night. Or maybe you have the idea that you are the perfect sleeper. Still, in both cases, it may be that there is a sleep disorder!
Certainly if you can not explain why you are often tired, it is advisable to take a closer look at your sleep behavior. For example, you might be sleeping too much …
Some sleep disorders may help you to treat yourself very well, for others you can treat yourself better and / or consult your GP. In any event, it is always better to find out that you are suffering from a sleep disorder so that you can take steps. This is, of course, better than that you keep tired of life without having an idea of the cause.
Distinction in sleep disorders
There are a lot of different sleep disorders, and these are broadly divided into two major groups of sleep disorders. We know the sleep disturbances where you sleep too little, and disturbing sleep.
If you have insufficient sleep, there is a very common or severe disorder. An example of a disorder that allows you to sleep very much and still tired is sleep apnea .
A number of disorders in this category can be treated well, and often even on your own! By adjusting patterns in your sleep behavior and / or lifestyle.
Tackle the cause of the sleep disorder
Sleep disorders are often caused by other complaints, most sleep disorders are addressed by addressing these complaints. It is therefore advisable to find the cause of your insomnia so that you can tackle the problem at the core.
Thus insomnia can be very well caused by stress, or even by a psychiatric disorder like depression. You then take your sleeping problem by the best of stress or depression. In the previous blog article, Better Sleep By Te Sport , you may have already read that sports are very good at fighting stress. In case of depression, it is advisable to consult your GP so that he or she can help you with this.
Also physical complaints are often a cause of sleeping problems , for example, pain from back or neck pain, or itching of eczema. In either case, and certainly in the latter case, you may also want to consult your GP. In the event of a lot of physical pains such as back pain, sports also often results. Sports first stresses, which often causes physical pain. Additionally, relax your muscles and strengthen them to prevent complaints.
Learned sleep problems
If no direct cause can be overcome, and we do not have a one-time and / or occasional sleep problems, this can also mean that sleeping problems have ever been “taught”. In this case, there has always been a clear cause, something that has played a time and caused the sleeping problems. Meanwhile, this cause can be remedied for a long time, without solving sleep problems, a nasty legacy of the previous cause of the problem. However, these sleeping problems can help you to correct yourself!
Excessive sleep disorders
During the day, just a sleepy feeling, and the idea that you are in a rust? Often trouble keeping your eyes open or sometimes not at all? I had myself around my 16th for a year that, despite normal nights , I fell asleep regularly during class at school! And when I went to school afterwards I went to bed on the couch for a few hours. Also on weekends I had no problem sleeping in bed in the afternoon. This is of course not a normal (sleep) behavior.
No normal sleep behavior
It affects your energy and performance levels during the day, and this was therefore reflected in my school performance. Eventually, this even led me to have done a year. Worst thing is that it had not even been necessary, if I had done everything over the last two weeks, I could have pulled it right … I simply did not care for the energy and threw the towel straight into the ring .
A sleep disorder that is characterized by these complaints is sleep apnea , so I suspect that I had trouble at that time. This has been more than 10 years since then, and unfortunately, I was not working on acquiring knowledge about sleep.
Another disorder in this category is narcolepsy . In this case, a person may also suffer from sleep attacks. Narcolepsy is a family disorder, which means that it is common in a group of relatives, family, without the fact that there is a genuine heredity. If one of your parents has it, then this does not mean that you have it in your genes too.
Do you ever see a sober person in a stool?
Narcolepsy is also characterized by a phenomenon called Cataplexia. Well, if someone (who was not drunk) just saw nothing from a barrel hit? Probably not, but suggest that he or she may suffer from this. In this phenomenon, sudden muscle relaxation occurs, causing someone to go straight to the ground. I’ve seen it once, weird sensation. I heard from one of his friends afterwards that it was happening more and more. Often this happens at an emotional peak, or when someone does not feel comfortable for example. The paralysis may take several seconds to a few minutes. Narcolepsy can also cause sleep paralysis , causing someone to sleep during sleep or waking.
You now have a little bit of an idea of the different types of sleep disorders. Maybe you sleep a lot or very little. In case of sleeping problems, it is always wise to look at the root of the problem, the cause of the sleep problems. Remedying the cause often causes sleep problems to disappear.
