insomnia Types of Insomnia
There are two types of insomnia: primary and secondary.
Primary insomnia: This means your sleep problems aren’t linked to any other health condition or problem.
Secondary insomnia: This means you have trouble sleeping because of a health condition (like asthma, depression, arthritis, cancer, or heartburn); pain; medication; or substance use (like alcohol).
You might also hear about:
Sleep-onset insomnia: This means you have trouble getting to sleep.
Sleep-maintenance insomnia: This happens when you have trouble staying asleep through the night or wake up too early.
Mixed insomnia: With this type of insomnia, you have trouble both falling asleep and staying asleep through the night.
Paradoxical insomnia: When you have paradoxical insomnia, you underestimate the time you’re asleep. It feels like you sleep a lot less than you really do.
