New research finds a link between people who suffer from insomnia and heart failure.  For their study, researchers followed over 54-thousand people of various ages over the course of 11-years and noted whether they suffered from the three main symptoms of insomnia: trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or not feeling refreshed in the morning.  They found that for people who had all three insomnia symptoms there was a 453-percent increased risk of heart failure, compared with those with no insomnia symptoms.  Researcher Dr. Lars Laugsand from the Norweigan University of Science and Technology says that sleeping problems could trigger stress responses that negatively affect heart function.  The study was published the European Heart Journal.  (Daily Mail)
