Most of you would know that insomnia is a sleep problem, and it causes difficulty in falling asleep and staying asleep for a reasonable amount of time. It also affects sleep quality, resulting in daytime inactivity. Most of the time, insomnia can become long-term. This long-term insomnia is called chronic insomnia. This type of insomnia is diagnosed when the patient has trouble sleeping, at least 3 to 4 days a week for at least one month. Acute insomnia or short-term insomnia is the most common type of insomnia that most people have today. As the name suggests, it is a short-term illness and lasts only for a few days or at most three to four weeks. Consult your doctor, get a proper check-up, explain all the problems including your sleep schedule.
