Do wind turbines cause insomnia?

by Martin Reed on 7 March 2013 in insomnia causes

The Doctors for Disaster Preparedness blame wind turbine syndrome for sleep problems, irritability and even depression.

Apparently, the low frequency sounds that are created by wind turbines can lead to frequent awakenings or arousals that may not be remembered.

Arousals that occur during slow-wave sleep can even trigger parasomnias such as night terrors and sleepwalking, according to Dr. Christopher Nanning, a sleep disorder expert.

Those most susceptible to sleep disturbances from wind turbines include young children, children with development disabilities (particularly autism spectrum disorders), the elderly and migraine sufferers.

If you live close to a wind turbine or wind farm it may be worth investigating whether that's to blame for your insomnia.
