It may seem odd, but being able to fall asleep fast may be a bad thing.
Sleep specialists suggest that if you fall asleep in less than five minutes, it may be due to excessive sleepiness. This could be caused by numerous sleep disorders, including sleep apnea and narcolepsy. You also may be chronically sleep deprived, simply not getting enough sleep. On the other hand, if you are delayed in falling asleep, you may have insomnia.
Falling asleep within 5-15 minutes seems ideal, but if you are out as soon as your head hits the pillows, you may need to take another look at how well and how much you are sleeping.
