Mental Health Disorders in the Night
Mental Health Disorders in the Night there are a few diverse types of Sleep Disorders that affect millions around the globe. Sleepwalking, Nightmares, Insomnia, and Sleep-Wake disorders can bring forth misery if not treated. All of us have endured nightmares or sleepless nights, but when the symptoms continue it is the person who has a disorder.
The symptoms that come alone with most sleep disorders include stress since inability to sleep, or sleeping too much, as well as nightmares cause grievance. Most sleeping disorders are linked to physical ailments, psychological stressors, other diagnosis, alcohol, drugs, as well as a few other factors.
Insomnia includes unhealthy symptoms that make a person have difficulty while trying to sleep, and often the person may wake up during sleep hours. This often leads to complications during the waking hours since the person is irritated. The patients often suffer with the inability to focus, depression, anxiety attacks, and no energy. Some patients may even suffer from bipolar, anxiety disorders, or other types of disorders.
I endured Insomnia of my life because of other disorders, but firsthand, I can tell you medicines may work for some people, but for others it may not. The solution I found that works best for me, is eating healthy, force the mind out of thought process when you lay down to sleep, and keep in mind “One day at a time.”
Insomnia patients often suffer apprehension, a sense of loss, and trauma as well as a few other symptoms. Most Insomnia Disorders means that somewhere down the line the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep mode was confused. The trick then is getting the REM scheduler back on track. During the REM sleep hours, the mind often dreams, and the body functions often shift. For example, your heart rate may increase or decrease in REM sleep mode.
Since REM is often affected by sleeping hour schedules, it is sometimes possible to endure a sleeping disorder. For example, if you have a night shift job and later switched to day shift, it is obvious the REM mode is imbalanced. Once you find a way to get the mind on track again, it is possible to reinstate your mental health. However, if you have underlying disorders, including posttraumatic stress, bipolar, multiple personality disorder, and other disorders, these diagnoses must be dealt with first before resolve comes for the sleeping disorder.
Sleep-Wake Disorders or Circadian Rhythm disorder often create sleeping inefficiencies, including sleepless nights, stress, anxiety, jet lag and so forth. This disorder is often caused by changes in the schedule. If the person does not see the sun when they wake simply because they sleep all day from working all night, this could cause Sleep-Wake disorders to develop.
Sleep Walking Disorders can become deadly. Recent studies have shown that sleepwalkers are capable of murder and will never know they killed. In my experiences, I do recall brief details of my sleep walking nights, only because others that witnessed the action gave me vivid details.
In one instant, I sat in a chair rocking back and forth and humming, and in another incident, I walked to the front of the house and peered out the door, turned, and went back to bed while walking past members of the household and never acknowledging them.
Sleeping disorders are related to elevated levels of stress, diagnosis such as Posttraumatic Stress, Multiple Personality Disorder, and other disorders where trauma exists. At the time I underwent sleepwalking, I was under a high-level of stress, and suffered both Multiple Personality and Posttraumatic Stress.
Most people that sleepwalk appear as though they are in Zombie land. For example, if you notice a person walking past you at bedtime, and his or her face has a blank stare or else a look of unemotional status, then the person is walking in their sleep. Finally, nightmare disorders are often linked to Posttraumatic Stress Disorders, as well as other disorders, while there is not enough evidence available to support the claims.
Trauma patients are often the people that suffer with nightmares throughout the night. The person will see a real-life scene that depicts horror, fright, and so forth and sometimes will wake up screaming, and most all the time endure night sweats.
Sometimes the dreams are reoccurring and sometimes the dreams change during the night. Studies has recently shown that sleep disorder patients may have physical disabilities that are linked to the sleeping problems, however all patients diagnosed with sleeping disorders have additional disorders, suffered trauma, drugs or drinks excessively, and so forth.
Regardless of the problems, you must find the source before you can treat individuals with sleeping disorders. Regardless of the disability it is always best to have a situational management solution for each patient separately.
