ABSTRACT

Insomnia, or sleeplessness, is an individual’s reported sleeping difficulties. “Insomnia” is derived from the Latin word “Somnus”, the name of the Roman god of sleep, with the incorporation of the prefix “in-” to add contradiction. 
Thus, insomnia is most often thought of as both a sign and a symptom that can accompany several sleeps, medical, and psychiatric disorders characterized by a persistent difficulty falling asleep and/or staying asleep or sleep of poor quality. Insomnia is typically followed by functional impairment while awake.
