Insomnia

Insomnia is one of the most common sleep disorders. A person with this sleep disorder can have one or all of the these symptoms: Difficulty falling asleep, waking up and then going back to sleep, feeling tired when waking up and waking up way before you need to. A recent study suggests that having a hyperactive brain may play a factor in why some people suffer from insomnia.
