Many patients who have sleep apnea also complain of insomnia. Although they are two conditions that often occur together, they are not associated, and there are many different factors that can contribute to insomnia. Some factors include medication, hormonal changes, and old age. Sleep is important to maintain an overall sense of wellbeing and quality of life, and without proper amounts of sleep can be very difficult to function. People who are sleep deprived may be experience difficulty with work and relationships, and many people suffer from depression after losing restorative sleep night after night. People also tend to get irritable, lose their patience and fly off the handle easily.
