Restless sleeping

Definition

The medical term for restless sleeping or sleeping difficulties is insomnia. This can occur as a result of other symptoms e.g. bloating, wind, reflux, colic, etc.

Insomnia is most often thought of as both a sign and a symptom that can accompany several sleep, medical, and psychiatric disorders, characterised by persistent difficulty falling asleep and/or staying asleep or sleep of poor quality. Insomnia is typically followed by functional impairment while awake.

It can be transient, acute, or chronic. In many cases, insomnia is co-morbid with another disease, side-effects from medications, or a psychological problem.
