Although insomnia is a type of sleep disorders, other sleep disorders can also trigger insomnia, including:
  • Sleep apnea If your breath pauses repeatedly in the sleep, you may have sleep apnea. Snoring is the main symptom. When your breath stops, you may wake up partially or completely, although you may not realize it at all.
  • Restless legs syndrome When you try to fall asleep, you may feel the urge to move your legs, and this may refer to restless legs syndrome. It makes you harder to fall asleep since you want to make some movements.
