Your partner may not be the only one missing out on a good night's rest. More than likely, your sleep is being affected, too.
- Chronic Illness:
Sleep problems can be due to a chronic illness, such as diabetes, arthritis, HIV/AIDS, lupus, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and multiple sclerosis.
