Common Sleep Disorders
Snoring / Sleep Apnea
Snoring ismore than an annoyance. Snoring may indicate amore serious condition known as sleep apnea, which can cause serious health problems.With sleep apnea, your breathing is shallow ormay even stop for short periods of time. This can be caused by obstruction of the airway, which leads top interruption of sleep. Treatment options are available.
Excessive Sleepiness / Narcolepsy
Do you find yourself nodding off in meetings? Are you having trouble staying awake behind the wheel of your vehicle? Excessive sleepiness, or narcolepsy, can cause you to have trouble staying awake during the day, even if you get enough sleep at night. Narcolepsy can cause a person to fall asleep multiple times during the day. These attacks are dangerous and can occur at any time and during any activity.

Do you have trouble falling asleep? Do you have trouble staying asleep? Do you wake up in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep?

Leg Cramps / Restless Leg Syndrome
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) creates tingling, creeping or burning sensations in the legs, and the uncontrollable urge to move the legs for relief. Symptoms generally occur when the individual is at rest, and can range from mild discomfort to severe pain.
The Dangers of Sleep Disorders
Sleep disorders affect more than 12 million Americans, but despite the associated health risks, the majority of them are untreated. People with sleep disorders can stop breathing as many as several hundred times per night, for a matter of seconds or more than a minute at a time. This puts additional strain on the heart, blood vessels and nervous system. Sleep disorders compromise your health and can make other illnesses more severe. Left untreated, sleep disorders can have serious health risks including:
- High blood pressure
- Heart problems
Sleep disorders can often be cured through lifestyle changes, surgery or breathing devices. Treatment can provide not only better quality sleep, but increased energy levels, better overall health and quality of life.
