Acute Insomnia:

Acute insomnia is short-term and is often related to a specific event or stressor, such as an examination, a job interview, a relationship break-up, the disease or death of a family member, or a traumatic incident. It typically resolves once the triggering factor is removed or resolved.

Chronic Insomnia:

Chronic insomnia lasts for at least three nights a week for three months or may persist for longer months or even years. It is more complex and can be caused by a combination of factors, including psychological, behavioral, and medical issues.

Sleep Onset Insomnia – Delayed Onset of Sleep:

This type of insomnia is characterized by difficulty falling asleep at the beginning of the night. Individuals with delayed onset of sleep may spend a prolonged amount of time in bed before they fall asleep. Common issues associated with delayed sleep onset include difficulty winding down, racing thoughts, anxiety, or a delayed sleep-wake phase. It often takes more than 30 minutes to fall asleep after getting into bed. Causes can include stress, anxiety, irregular sleep schedules, excessive caffeine or stimulant use, and certain medical conditions.

Maintenance Insomnia – Difficulty Maintaining Sleep:

This type of insomnia involves individuals having no trouble falling asleep initially, but they experience frequent awakenings during the night or have difficulty returning to sleep after waking up. People with difficulty maintaining sleep may wake up multiple times during the night and have trouble getting back to sleep. This can lead to fragmented and non-restful sleep.

Causes can include physical discomfort (e.g., pain or medical conditions), stress, anxiety, medications, and sleep disorders like sleep apnea.

Insomnia can have a significant impact on an individual's sleep quality and overall well-being, and the specific approach to managing it may vary based on the underlying causes.
