Inability to fall asleep: Insomnia is often associated with poor lifestyle habits, anxiety, depression, and environmental factors. Common symptoms include:
- Difficulty falling asleep
- Unable to sleep at night, sensitivity to light and sound
- Persistent nightmares
- Waking up early, or waking up and being unable to get back to sleep
- Not feeling well-rested after a night’s sleep
- Fatigue and difficulty concentrating during the day
- Being anxious and quick to anger
Poor sleep quality: Snoring, suffocation, poor breathing, hypoxia, physical activity, speech or walking, or even impulsive behavior during sleep, leading to decreased sleep quality.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA): Snoring, dyspnea, and suffocation are caused by obesity or upper airway obstruction. Pediatric patients often suffer from dyspnea and hypoxia during sleep due to adenoid hypertrophy and rhinitis.
Parasomnia or restless legs syndrome: Speech, shocks, physical activity, etc. during sleep, or difficulty falling asleep due to uncontrollable activity of the lower limbs.
Too much sleep: In addition to being unable to fall asleep and poor sleep quality, some patients with sleep disorders have narcolepsy. They cannot wake up normally due to too much sleep, and they cannot work normally due to sleepiness during the day.
