Any mental or physical condition can disrupt your sleep and in more than one way. While some of us can’t sleep at night, some suffer from excessive sleepiness even in daytime. No matter how cool being an insomniac is these days, sleeping disorders are not a joke and must be taken seriously.

Now, the first step to fight from these disorders is to know everything about them. Some of the sleeping disorders are enlisted below.


It is the most common and most popular. Insomnia is the inability to get sufficient amount of sleep, or the inability to take a good sleep for sufficient hours.

For example, insomniacs take around 20-30 minutes to fall asleep, and even then the sleep is not tight enough to last till 7-8 hours.

About 10 percent of adults suffer from this sleeping disorder.

Sleep Paralysis

It is the temporary inability to move while transitioning from sleep to wakefulness. It can terrify, or even frighten yourself a bit as in this disorder, you are wide awake, but still can’t move.

Hallucinations are often associated with Sleep Paralysis.

It affects around 25 percent of normal people at least once in a lifetime. It may also be a symptom of narcolepsy, which is another sleeping disorder.


This sleeping disorder has four symptoms: excessive daytime sleep, cataplexy, sleep paralysis, and hypnagogic hallucinations.

While we already know about the excessive daytime sleepiness and have discussed sleep paralysis before, cataplexy refers to the loss of a muscle tone in response to an emotional stimulus; and hypnagogic hallucination is the detailed dreaming, which includes auditory, visual, and tactile sensations while sleeping.


It is also one of the most common sleeping disorders, and most often than not, it is not taken seriously enough. Snoring means the difficulty in keeping the throat open while sleeping.

Sleep Apnea

It can be called an extreme condition of snoring. It is a chronic medical condition in which a person can even stop breathing while sleeping. The condition can last for 10 seconds or more and can cause the blood to drop. It is either this or your awakening up from the sleep.
