Sleeping habits review

The doctors ask the patient all the sleeplessness related questions and inquire the patient more descriptively to determine the cause behind insomnia. The doctors also encourage the patients to have a sleep diary for some weeks or a month. In the sleep diary, a patient usually writes down about how often he gets the sleep, the quality of the sleep, the restlessness he experiences by waking up early. The doctors also ask the patients to fill out the sleep-related questionnaires in order to determine the actual condition of insomnia. The questionnaire might have questions related to the sleep-wake cycle or pattern and the level of sleepiness you feel during the daytime. Epworth Sleepiness Scale is a specialized questionnaire that assesses the patient’s sleepiness during the daytime.
