Xuzhou insomnia: what causes insomnia in the elderly?

Xuzhou Mental Health Service Station: 1. Organic diseases of the brain As the age increases, the cerebral arteries gradually harden, and the degree of hardening will increase year by year, which is the pathological basis of hypertension, cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral infarction, dementia, and tremor paralysis. After the occurrence of cerebral arteriosclerosis, the blood flow of the brain will be reduced accordingly, which will cause the brain metabolism disorder, and then the symptoms of insomnia will appear. 2. After entering old age, the incidence of systemic diseases increases significantly, such as coronary heart disease, pulmonary heart disease, emphysema, diabetes, cervical spondylosis, etc., which will seriously affect sleep. 3. Mental and psychological factors After entering old age and retirement, the mental state after retirement cannot be exactly the same as in the job, especially the old comrades who retired from leadership positions often show depression. 4. Frequent urination at night Chinese medicine believes that when people enter old age, kidney qi will be deficient, kidney qi is insufficient, and the number of urination at night will increase, which will also affect the sleep of the elderly. 5. "Worry" Chinese medicine believes that "worry" is closely related to insomnia in the elderly. The so-called troubles are anxiety and depression; thinking refers to the mental state of concentrating energy, using wisdom, and thinking about problems. Anxiety can easily lead to stagnation of the liver and qi, disturb the mind and cause insomnia, or damage the spleen and stomach. Excessive thinking will damage the spleen, the heart, spleen and blood will be deficient, lack of energy, and lead to insomnia. In real life, many insomniacs have difficulty falling asleep in bed, but they can fall asleep when they should not, such as falling asleep quickly during a meeting. The reason is that they are used to worrying when they should sleep, which leads to conditioned arousal and insomnia; however, if they don't have these mental burdens when they should not sleep, they can sleep. This shows that mood has a direct impact on sleep.
