Insomnia includes having trouble falling or staying asleep. It's one of the most common medical complaints. With insomnia, you usually awaken feeling unrefreshed, which takes a toll on your ability to function during the day. Insomnia can sap not only your energy level and mood, but also your health, work performance and quality of life.

How much sleep is enough varies from person to person. Most adults need seven to eight hours a night. More than one-third of adults have insomnia at some time, while 10 to 15 percent report long-term (chronic) insomnia.

You don't have to put up with sleepless nights. Simple changes in your daily habits can resolve insomnia and restore your needed rest.

Insomnia signs and symptoms may include:

* Difficulty falling asleep at night
* Awakening during the night
* Awakening too early
* Not feeling well rested after a night's sleep
* Daytime fatigue or sleepiness
* Irritability, depression or anxiety
* Difficulty paying attention or focusing on tasks
* Increased errors or accidents
* Tension headaches
* Gastrointestinal symptoms
* Ongoing worries about sleep

When to see a doctor
If insomnia makes it hard for you to function during the day, see your doctor to determine what might be the cause of your sleep problem and how it can be treated. If your doctor thinks you could have another sleep disorder, you might be referred to a sleep center for special testing.
