Diagnosing Insomnia

In order to diagnose insomnia, a physician will perform a physical exam to determine any underlying medical cause for sleep problems, including a blood test to rule out a thyroid condition. In addition, a detailed sleep questionnaire or sleep diary may clarify a patient's sleep-wake pattern and level of day and night sleepiness. In the case of other signs of a sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea, a patient may need to undergo a sleep study, where tests that monitor and record body activities (including brain waves, breathing, heartbeat, and eye and body movements) during sleep are performed.11
