What is shift work sleep disorder?

Shift work sleep disorder is a chronic condition that is caused by a person’s work schedule, according to the National Sleep FoundationOff Site Icon (NSF).

The condition causes a misalignment of sleep patterns, according to the NSF, which makes it difficult to sleep when you need to, when you want to, or when you are expected to.

Shift work sleep disorder can be caused by night shifts, rotating shifts, or early morning shifts, all of which can lead to chronic sleep deprivation if the condition is not managed, according to the NSF.

For more information about shift work sleep disorder, talk with your doctor.
