Sleep Disorders

Home » Medical Services » Sleep Disorders

The best sleep leaves us feeling rested and refreshed the next day. But for many people, that's not what happens.

Conditions that can affect our sleep patterns include:

  • Sleep Apnea
  • Insomnia
  • Restless Legs Syndrome
  • Periodic Limb Movement
  • Narcolepsy
  • Sleep Walking, Sleep Talking or Sleep Terrors

A lack of sleep is especially dangerous when driving. Studies have shown that if you’re awake after more than 20 hours, it is equivalent to being intoxicated.

Do You Have a Sleep Disorder?

If you are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, you may have a sleep disorder:

  • Have been told that you stop breathing while asleep
  • Wake up gasping for air
  • Often snore loudly
  • Have difficulty falling asleep
  • Are overweight
  • Have high blood pressure
  • Wake up with headaches
  • Suffer from depression
  • Have trouble concentrating
  • Often feel tired
  • Fall asleep at inappropriate times, including while driving or at work
  • Take frequent naps
  • Walk in your sleep
  • Experience involuntary body movement while asleep

To diagnose your sleep disorder, a provider may perform a sleep study.
