Acute vs. Chronic Insomnia

Insomnia is the most common sleep complaint among Americans. It can be short-term (acute insomnia) or can last a long time (chronic insomnia). When insomnia persists for longer than a month, it is considered chronic. It can also come and go, with periods of time when a person has no sleep problems.

Causes of Acute Insomnia can include:

  • Significant life stress (job loss or change, death of a loved one, divorce, moving)
  • Illness
  • Emotional or physical discomfort
  • Environmental factors like noise, light, or extreme temperatures (hot or cold) that interfere with sleep
  • Some medications (for example those used to treat colds, allergies, depression, high blood pressure, and asthma) may interfere with sleep
  • Interferences in normal sleep schedule (jet lag or switching from a day to night shift, for example)

Causes of Chronic Insomnia include:

  • Depression and/or anxiety
  • Chronic stress
  • Pain or discomfort at night
