Insomnia is one of the most common sequelae of COVID-19. Sleep difficulties are also being reported by people worldwide whose lives have been turned upside down by the fear and anxiety of living through the coronavirus pandemic and the social isolation resulting from government restrictions. These increases in insomnia have led neurologists who specialise in sleep disorders to coin the term ‘COVID-somnia’.

This article explains the pathomechanism of COVID-somnia from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The diagnosis and pattern differentiation of insomnia are documented in order to help practitioners to treat this widespread pernicious problem.
