Insomnia is a sleep disorder where you have trouble falling and / or staying asleep.

The condition can be short (bad) or long-lasting (chronic). It might as well come and go.

Sleep apnea lasts from 1 night to a few weeks. Insomnia lasts longer if it happens at least 3 nights a week for 3 months or more.

Types of Insomnia
There are two types of insomnia: primary and secondary.

Basic insomnia: This means that your sleep problems are not linked to any health condition or problem.

Secondary insomnia: This means that you have trouble sleeping due to a health condition (such as asthma, depression, arthritis, cancer, or heart attack); pain; medicine; or drug use (such as alcohol).
