Asthma linked to insomnia
This article is about research showing asthmatics have a higher rate of insomnia. And the worse the asthma, the more frequent the insomnia. Also, nasal congestion along with asthma increased risk of insomnia. This study was only a survey, but a large one. However, other sleep disorders could contribute to insomnia in asthmatics, such as obstructive sleep apnea. Some asthma medications can also reduce sleep quality.
