Sleeping disorders after a brain injury can be another problem you don’t need during your rehabilitation.
Unfortunately, brain injury can often lead to a sleep disorder. The American Academy of Neurology reports that as many as 40 to 65 percent of people with mild traumatic brain injury complain of insomnia.
This can be hard to detect because people with brain injuries can also have a fatigue disorder. Although some people have problems with getting too much sleep, the usual sleep disorder is trouble sleeping at night. This includes problems with timing of sleep at night, then feeling drowsy during the day.
