Insomnia may refer to a difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep. CNS lesions and head trauma are a rare cause of insomnia, sleep apnea and chronic pain are other potential causes, but most cases of new-onset insomnia are the result acute psychosocial stress, if not a symptom of underlying anxiety or depression. The sleep-wake cycle is governed by the body’s circadian rhythms, which may be affected by the timing of meals, physical activity, and exposure to ambient light. However, sleep-wake timing is also subject to changes in circulating cortisol levels. Cortisol peaks play a significant role in the normal waking response, explaining the clear link between insomnia and stress. The short-term use of hypnotics can be useful to facilitate sleep during bouts of acute stress; however they should not be relied upon for long-term use. Better results will be obtained by addressing the underlying cause.
