The sleep doctors of Sleep Medicine Associates of Texas routinely treat patients who suffer from insomnia. People who suffer from insomnia symptoms may experience problems falling asleep, staying asleep and/or waking early and feeling exhausted throughout the day. This sleep disorder may persist for months or years and undermine your ability to function. While many adults experience occasional sleep problems, insomnia is a sleep disorder that may require the care of a sleep disorder clinic. Effective insomnia treatment can reverse this problem.

Some of insomnia causes are straightforward such as aging, a change in your biological clock or a stressful event in your life such as a relationship problem or the loss of a loved one. Another cause of insomnia is the consumption of stimulants like caffeine or over the counter drugs. Bad sleep hygiene may also contribute to insomnia.
