How do I know if I have it
1. Do you have trouble sleeping or are you severely tired?
2. Is this problem due to a schedule that requires you to work when you would normally sleep?
3. Have you had this work-related sleep problem for at least one month?
4. Does this problem hurt your social, family, or work life?
If your answer to each of these questions is yes, then you might have shift work disorder.
It is also important to know if there is something else that is causing your sleep problems.
They may be a result of one of the following:
- Another sleep disorder
- A medical condition
- Medication use
- A mental health disorder
- Substance abuse
