Insomnia - Sleep Quality is Pivotal

Insomnia Insomnia often includes two elements:  poor sleep quality and not sleeping when you want to be sleeping.  Many terms are used to describe “insomnia,” such as “poor sleep,” “unwanted sleeplessness,” “troubled sleep,” or “problematic sleep.”  In general these terms are interchangeable particularly so because individuals with sleep problems relate to one if not all of them.

A common complaint among insomnia patients, therefore, is not getting enough sleep, which technically appears to be a sleep quantity problem instead of a sleep quality problem.
