Case Study on Sleep Problems

  1. 1. Causes of Sleep Problems Prepared by IQRAM HUSSAIN Creative Venture Team
  2. 2. Causes of Sleep Problems Factors that can cause sleep problems are:1. Physical (for example, ulcers)2. Medical (for example, asthma)3. Psychiatric (for example, depression and anxiety disorders)4. Environmental (for example, alcohol use)
  3. 3. Causes of Sleep Problems Genetics: Researchers have found a genetic basis for narcolepsy, a neurological disorder of sleep regulation that affects the control of sleep and wakefulness. Night shift work: People who work at night often experience sleep disorders, because they cannot sleep when they start to feel drowsy. Their activities run contrary to their biological clocks. Medications: Many drugs can interfere with sleep, such as certain antidepressants, blood pressure medication, and over-the-counter cold medicine. Aging: About half of all adults over the age of 65 have some sort of sleep disorder. It is not clear if it is a normal part of aging or a result of medications that older people commonly use.
