While anyone can develop insomnia, some factors boost your risk of experiencing it. Examples include:
Adopting healthy lifestyle habits is the best way to reduce your risk of developing insomnia or other sleep disorders.
To find out if you have insomnia or other conditions that negatively affect your sleep, a provider discusses your symptoms and medical history with you. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and may order blood tests or a sleep study.
If you struggle with insomnia, common treatments your provider could recommend include:
To get better rest, you can try eating healthy foods, getting regular exercise (but not right before bed), maintaining a healthy body weight, keeping stress levels low, and practicing relaxation techniques.
Avoid alcohol and caffeine late in the day and don’t smoke. Limit or avoid naps, don’t consume large meals right before bed, and set a regular sleep schedule.
If you have insomnia, taking prescription medications prescribed by your California Coast Family Practice specialist can improve sleep quality.
