Insomnia symptoms linked with medical complaints in young school-aged children

Westchester, Ill. A study in the Dec. 15 issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine indicates that significant associations exist between parent-reported insomnia symptoms and medical complaints of gastrointestinal regurgitation and headaches in young school-aged children.

Data from 700 children between the ages of five and 12 years (mean 8.8 years) were collected from the Penn State Children's Cohort for this cross-sectional study.
