How to Get Help From the VA for your Sleep Disorder

Sleep Disorders Related to PTSD: Insomnia

Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterized by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Other problems that come along with insomnia include waking up often during the night and having trouble getting back to sleep, waking up too early in the morning and feeling tired upon waking. This disorder is common among veterans. Hi, I’m Mike Woods, a Veterans Disability Benefits Lawyer at Woods & Woods – The Veteran’s Firm. There are two types of insomnia. Primary insomnia is where a person is having sleep problems that are not associated with any other problem or health condition. Secondary insomnia is where a person is having sleep problems because of something else, such as pain, medication they are taking, a health condition or a substance they are using such as alcohol.

Veterans with PTSD Often Have Insomnia:

Insomnia is sometimes paired with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Veterans with insomnia may have acute insomnia or chronic insomnia. Acute insomnia is a short term problem. It can come and go and be as short as one night or a few weeks. Chronic insomnia is considered chronic when the insomnia lasts at least three nights a week for a month or longer. There are several causes of both types of insomnia. Acute insomnia can be caused by significant life stress, illness, emotional or physical discomfort and several others. Chronic insomnia can be caused by depression, anxiety, chronic stress and pain or discomfort at night. Because of these causes, insomnia is very common among veterans.
