Numerous factors can contribute to insomnia, including medical conditions, illnesses, allergies, medications, and lifestyle:

  • Mental health issues such as anxiety or depression. These are the most common causes of insomnia

  • Emotional distress caused by persistent feelings of grief, excessive worrying, anger, and stress.

  • Medical problems or illness. Many medical conditions and diseases can contribute to insomnia, including asthma, allergies, Parkinson’s disease, hyperthyroidism, acid reflux, kidney disease, and cancer. Chronic pain is also a very common cause of insomnia.

  • Prescription drugs can disrupt normal sleep cycles. Insomnia is associated with a variety of medications including stimulants used to treat ADHD, antidepressants, blood pressure medication, even over-the-counter drugs like cold or flu medications, and pain relievers (like Excedrin) that contain caffeine.

  • External stimuli including leaving the television on, sleeping with your computer on or loud noises (like street traffic).

  • Poor diet and lifestyle choices can also be contributing factors.

  • Other conditions such restless leg syndrome, circadian rhythm disruptions related to jet lag or late-night work shifts, or sleep apnea.
