Insomnia refers to a difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep for the required amount of time to feel refreshed the next morning, despite having enough opportunity to sleep during the night. Someone with insomnia will often wake up during the night, feel tired or irritable the next day, and/or find it difficult to function during the day. Insomnia can be caused by a number of reasons which include depression, stress, ageing, or medical reasons.
