Symptoms of Insomnia

Most people know when they have insomnia and are often frustrated with their lack of sleep. But there are other symptoms, too, and increased health risks for chronic insomnia that is left untreated.

Daytime Symptoms of Insomnia

When you do not get sufficient quantity or quality seep, you suffer during the day. Symptoms of insomnia experienced during normal waking hours include:

  • Fatigue and sleepiness
  • Inability to concentrate or focus on a task
  • Difficulty remembering
  • Mood swings, irritability and/or aggression
  • Diminished performance at work or school

Insomnia can also lead to or exacerbate depression and anxiety.

Risks of Untreated Insomnia

Symptoms of insomnia are miserable enough, but people who experience a chronic lack of sleep are at greater risk for a number of health conditions, including:

Drowsy driving, which impairs reaction time and decision making like drunk driving, puts people at greater risk for car accidents. People may also experience more workplace accidents.
