A sleep disorder (निद्रा विकार), or somnipathy, is a medical disorder of the sleep patterns of a person or animal. Some sleep disorders are serious enough to interfere with normal physical, mental, social and emotional functioning. The most common sleep disorder is insomnia. Primary sleep disorders are common in both children and adults. The risk of developing sleep disorders in the elderly is especially increased for sleep-disordered breathing, periodic limb movements, restless legs syndrome, REM sleep behavior disorders, insomnia, and circadian rhythm disturbances. Being a sleep disorder of great concern, Siddha Spirituality of Swami Hardas Life System considers our valuable readers to get well conversant about it for the wellbeing of self as well as family.
Sleep disorder Definition (निद्रा विकार की परिभाषा)
Sleep disorders are a group of syndromes characterized by disturbance in the patient’s amount of sleep, quality or timing of sleep, or in behaviors or physiological conditions associated with sleep. There are about 70 different sleep disorders. To qualify for the diagnosis of sleep disorder, the condition must be a persistent problem, cause the patient significant emotional distress, and interfere with his or her social or occupational functioning.
Common sleep disorders (सामान्य निद्रा विकार)
The most common sleep disorders include:
- Bruxism, involuntarily grinding or clenching of the teeth while sleeping
- Catathrenia, nocturnal groaning during prolonged exhalation
- Delayed sleep phase disorder (DSPD)
- Hypopnea syndrome, abnormally shallow breathing or slow respiratory rate while sleeping
- Idiopathic hypersomnia, a primary, neurologic cause of long-sleeping, sharing many similarities with narcolepsy
- Insomnia disorder (primary insomnia), chronic difficulty in falling asleep and/or maintaining sleep when no other cause is found for these symptoms
- Kleine–Levin syndrome, a rare disorder characterized by persistent episodic hypersomnia and cognitive or mood changes
- Narcolepsy, including excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS)
- Night terror, Pavor nocturnus, sleep terror disorder, an abrupt awakening from sleep with behavior consistent with terror

Sleep disorder Types (निद्रा विकार के प्रकार)
A broad category of sleep disorders characterized by either hypersomnia or insomnia. The three major subcategories include intrinsic i.e. arising from within the body, extrinsic, and disturbances of the circadian rhythm.
- Insomnia: Insomnia may be primary or it may be comorbid with or secondary to another disorder such as a mood disorder i.e. emotional stress, anxiety, depression or underlying health condition i.e. asthma, diabetes, heart disease, pregnancy or neurological conditions.
- Primary hypersomnia. Hypersomnia of central or brain origin.
Narcolepsy (आवेशिक निद्रा)
A chronic neurological disorder (or dyssomnia), which is caused by the brain’s inability to control sleep and wakefulness.
Idiopathic hypersomnia (अज्ञातहेतुक हाइपरसोमिया)
Chronic neurological disease is similar to narcolepsy in which there is an increased amount of fatigue and sleep during the day. Patients who suffer from idiopathic hypersomnia cannot obtain a healthy amount of sleep for a regular day of activities. This hinders the patients’ ability to perform well, and patients have to deal with this for the rest of their lives.
- Recurrent hypersomnia – including Kleine–Levin syndrome
- Posttraumatic hypersomnia
- Menstrual-related hypersomnia
Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) [निद्रा विकार-विकारयुक्त श्वास]
- Restless leg syndrome
- Periodic limb movement disorder
- Several types of Sleep apnea
- Upper airway resistance syndrome
Circadian rhythm sleep disorders (सर्कैडियन लय निद्रा विकार)
- Delayed sleep phase disorder
- Advanced sleep phase disorder
- Non-24-hour sleep-wake disorder
A category of sleep disorders that involve abnormal and unnatural movements, behaviors, emotions, perceptions, and dreams in connection with sleep.
- Bedwetting or sleep enuresis
- Bruxism (Tooth-grinding)
- Catathrenia – nocturnal groaning
- Exploding head syndrome – Waking up in the night hearing loud noises
- Sleep terror – Characterized by a sudden arousal from a deep sleep with a scream or cry, accompanied by some behavioral manifestations of intense fear
- REM sleep behaviour disorder
- Sleepwalking or somnambulism
- Sleep talking or somniloquy
- Sleep sex or sexsomnia

Sleep disorder Causes (निद्रा विकार का कारण)
A systematic review found that traumatic childhood experiences (such as family conflict or sexual trauma) significantly increases the risk for a number of sleep disorders in adulthood, including sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and insomnia. It is currently unclear whether or not moderate alcohol consumption increases the risk of obstructive sleep apnea.
In addition, evidence-based synopsis suggests that sleep disorder, idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder (iRBD), may have a hereditary component to it.
A population susceptible to the development of sleep disorders is people who have experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Because many researchers have focused on this issue, a systematic review was conducted to synthesize their findings. According to their results, TBI individuals are most disproportionately at risk for developing narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnea, excessive daytime sleepiness, and insomnia.
Sleep disturbances and Alzheimer’s Disease (निद्रा की गड़बड़ी और अल्जाइमर रोग)
More than 70% of people with dementia are affected by Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Despite this high number, our understanding of the mechanisms underlying the progression of this disease remains very limited. However, recent studies have highlighted a link between sleep disturbances and Alzheimer’s disease.
Sleep changes with normal aging. Indeed, with age, we find a decrease in time sleeping and also a decrease in the quantity of NREM sleep, more precisely in NREM SWS (less than 10% of the SWS is maintained). Older people also are more prone to insomnia or sleep apnea.
Sleep disorder Treatment (निद्रा विकार का उपचार)
Treatments for sleep disorders generally can be grouped into four categories:
- Behavioral and psychotherapeutic treatment
- Rehabilitation and management
- Other somatic treatment
None of these general approaches is sufficient for all patients with sleep disorders. Rather, the choice of a specific treatment depends on the patient’s diagnosis, medical and psychiatric history, and preferences, as well as the expertise of the treating clinician.
Special equipment may be required for the treatment of several disorders such as obstructive apnea, circadian rhythm disorders, and bruxism. In these cases, when severe, an acceptance of living with the disorder, however well managed, is often necessary.
Allergy treatment (एलर्जी का उपचार)
Histamine plays a role in wakefulness in the brain. An allergic reaction overproduces histamine causing wakefulness and inhibiting sleep. Sleep problems are common in people with allergic rhinitis. A study from the N.I.H. found that sleep is dramatically impaired by allergic symptoms and that the degree of impairment is related to the severity of those symptoms. Treatment of allergies has also been shown to help sleep apnea.
A review of the evidence in 2012 concluded that current research is not rigorous enough to make recommendations around the use of acupuncture for insomnia. The pooled results of two trials on acupuncture showed a moderate likelihood that there may be some improvement to sleep quality for individuals with a diagnosis of insomnia. This form of treatment for sleep disorders is generally studied in adults, rather than children. Further research would be needed to study the effects of acupuncture on sleep disorders in children.
Research suggests that hypnosis may be helpful in alleviating some types and manifestations of sleep disorders in some patients. Acute and chronic insomnia often respond to relaxation and hypnotherapy approaches, along with sleep hygiene instructions. Hypnotherapy has also helped with nightmares and sleep, terrors. There are several reports of successful use of hypnotherapy for parasomnias specifically for head and body rocking, bedwetting and sleepwalking.
Music therapy (संगीतीय उपचार)
Although more research should be done to increase the reliability of this method of treatment, research suggests that music therapy can improve sleep quality in acute and chronic sleep disorders.
In addressing sleep disorders and possible solutions, there is often a lot of buzz surrounding melatonin. Research suggests that melatonin is useful in helping people to fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and to experience improved sleep quality.
Sleep disorder Medicine (निद्रा विकार के लिए औषधी)
Specialists in Sleep Medicine were originally certified by the American Board of Sleep Medicine, which still recognizes specialists. Those passing the Sleep Medicine Specialty Exam received the designation “diplomate of the ABSM.” Sleep Medicine is now a recognized subspecialty within internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, otolaryngology, psychiatry and neurology in the United States. Certification in Sleep Medicine shows that the specialist:
“has demonstrated expertise in the diagnosis and management of clinical conditions that occur during sleep, that disturb sleep, or that are affected by disturbances in the wake-sleep cycle. This specialist is skilled in the analysis and interpretation of comprehensive polysomnography, and well-versed in emerging research and management of a sleep laboratory.”
Competence in sleep medicine requires an understanding of a myriad of very diverse disorders, many of which present with similar symptoms such as excessive daytime sleepiness, which, in the absence of volitional sleep deprivation, is almost inevitably caused by an identifiable and treatable sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea, narcolepsy, idiopathic hypersomnia, Kleine–Levin syndrome, menstrual-related hypersomnia, idiopathic recurrent stupor, or circadian rhythm disturbances. Another common complaint is insomnia, a set of symptoms that can have a great many different causes, physical and mental. Management in varying situations differs greatly and cannot be undertaken without a correct diagnosis.
