A Concussion Can Lead To Sleep Problems That Last For Years

People who sustain a concussion or a more severe traumatic brain injury are likely to have sleep problems that continue for at least a year and a half.

Surprisingly, most of these concussed patients had no idea that their sleep patterns had changed.

Months after a concussion or other traumatic brain injury, you may sleep more hours, but the sleep isn't restorative, a study suggests.

But so is leaving a sleep disturbance undetected. One possibility is referring patients with concussions and other brain injuries for sleep studies. That's a costly option, Edlow says.

Surprisingly, most of these concussed patients had no idea that their sleep patterns had changed.

The challenge now, Edlow says, is to figure out what that mechanism is.

In severe injuries, the forces are so great that they actually tear apart circuits deep inside the brain.

Traumatic Brain Injury Can Cause Long-term Sleep Problems and

Half of people who have suffered severe head injuries have trouble maintaining normal sleeping habits and often don't realize it's a problem.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the research also shows there is a strong correlation between severe TBI and pleisomnia (excessive sleep need) six months after injury. Previous studies suggest that nearly half of patients with severe TBI will experience daytime sleepiness and changes in their sleep-wake cycle. Studies suggest that this is a physiological response and that the brain requires extra sleep to heal from the injury. Disturbances to a normal sleep-wake cycle—even in healthy people—affects cognition, memory and executive function.

Patients with TBI also slept for a longer duration than those without injuries.

Patients suffering from TBI of any severity, in both the acute and chronic phases, commonly report excessive daytime sleepiness, increased sleep need, insomnia, and sleep fragmentation. Identification and treatment of sleep disorders in patients with TBI is important and can complement other efforts to promote maximum functional recovery.
