About Sleep Disorders

What Are Sleep Disorders?

Uninterrupted and restful sleep is essential for a healthy life. Yet many people suffer from chronic, treatable sleep problems that cause them fatigue, irritability, medical problems, morning headaches, lost time from work and an inability to concentrate.

Common sleep disorders include:

Sleep Apnea

Very loud snoring, pauses in breathing and excessive daytime sleepiness.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

The airway in the back of the throat collapses and prevents oxygen from entering the lungs and reaching the bloodstream, causing periods of apnea.

Central Sleep Apnea

The Brain may fail to signal the chest muscles to breathe, causing periods of Apnea.

Gastroesophageal Reflux

Gastric acid may back up into the esophagus, disturbing sleep and causing you to awaken several times during the night.

Insomnia

Difficulty falling or staying asleep or insufficient, disturbed, non-restorative sleep.

Narcolepsy

Excessive daytime sleepiness.

Parasomnias

Sleep walking, talking or eating, bed-wetting or sleep terrors.

Sleep Cycle Disturbances

Advanced or delayed sleep cycles or problems adjusting to shift work.

Restless Legs Syndrome

Involuntary leg movements that disturb or prevent the onset of sleep and/or continued sleep.

Nocturnal Myoclonus

Periodic Involuntary leg movements or jerking motions during sleep may cause a lighter, less restful sleep.

Narcolepsy
