Are you suffering from insomnia after an injury or illness?
Although some injuries are relatively straightforward, if you suffer a particularly serious injury or illness, the experience may be fairly traumatic. If, for example, you were involved in a sudden road traffic accident, you may enter into a state of shock for a significant period of time.
Often, people assume that when someone has suffered an injury they will be OK if they receive treatment for their physical injuries. Although this type of treatment can be life saving, people can still suffer, even when their physical injuries have healed.
In many instances, people who have suffered traumatic or sudden injuries will report periods of insomnia following the event. In some cases people won’t be able to sleep at all whereas others may find that they awaken numerous times during the night.
In addition to this, some people even suffer from nightmares following a traumatic incident which can make it difficult to get back to sleep. Although insomnia can have a serious effect on a person’s health, it isn’t the only side-effect of a traumatic injury.
Often, people who have been involved in an accident or an incident which results in an injury occurring will report increased anxiety and tearfulness as well as low moods and difficulty concentrating. Whilst these can sometimes be linked to a physical condition, they are often merely an emotional response to the stress you have been through.
Whilst some people find that these symptoms diminish over time without intervention, you may want to get medical help rather than suffer in silence. For some people, medication may help them to sleep or prevent them from becoming too anxious but for others, counselling or an alternative therapy may be the best course of action.
If you’ve been hurt or injured and you’re struggling as a result, you could also claim compensation for what’s happened. Often, injury solicitors in Warminster will be able to help claimants who have suffered injuries and this may help you to cope financially whilst you recover.
