Symptoms of Stress and Sleep Problems

Overview

Common symptoms of stress include sleep problems or a change in your sleep pattern. If you are having ongoing sleep problems, think about whether you may be under a lot of stress. Stress is a normal part of everyday life, but an increase in stress can cause physical and emotional problems.

Changes in life's expectations or demands may lead to stress. Work, financial problems, family obligations, or changes in marriage or other relationships all may increase stress. It is important to look at all aspects of your life, because stress can build up over time.

If you think that stress is causing your sleep problems, work with your doctor to develop a plan to reduce your stress level and help with sleep.
