WAKING UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT? HERE’S WHY IT HAPPENS

You are in deep sound sleep one minute and oh! - now you’re wide awake thinking what to do because you can’t fall back to sleep. Familiar much? Well, if you think that waking up in middle of the dead night is awkward then don’t worry because there’s nothing horrifying in it.

It is completely normal to wake up in the middle of the night. Most of the people go through this situation at least three times a week. There could be many reasons behind this condition which is called - sleep maintenance insomnia. It is a common but extremely annoying sleep issue. There are different reasons why this happens.

ANXIETY


Yes, you got that right. If you have anxiety and are waking up in the middle of the night, it is totally normal. This is because you can experience problems like nightmares.

FULL BLADDER


Getting up to pee in middle of your sleep is very common. This happens because your full bladder can’t wait till morning. Drinking too much of fluids before sleep can cause this situation to happen. So, make sure to go to the bathroom before getting the sound sleep.

ENVIRONMENT THAT YOU SLEEP IN


The environment you dose off in plays an important role during your sound sleep. If the place you sleep, is not dark, or is very noisy then your sleep may be disturbed. So the environment should be dark and noise-free.  The temperature of the room should also be accurate; it shouldn’t be very hot or very cold to sleep in.

SLEEP APNEA


It’s a disorder when your breathe stops or slows down during you are asleep. That is you awake feeling like you need to catch your breathe. So if you have got a serious issue like this on a regular basis then you should visit your doctor soon.

RESTLESS LEG


If your legs feel tired all day, then this can affect your deep sleep while you fall asleep. Feeling of throbbing, itching or aching of your legs during the sleep can disrupt your sleep too.

So if you are having all these troubles and they are not going away then its time that you should definitely consult a doctor.
