In many cases, proper evaluation and treatment can help you return to a normal sleeping pattern, eliminating the stress, anxiety and other difficulties associated with sleep disorders. We can help you address these issues and get a healthy amount of rest.
Sleep Disorders are Serious
Many adults dismiss sleeplessness as part of getting older, but studies show there are extremely negative impacts on your health when you aren’t sleeping well. Sleep disorders are a major cause of many chronic health conditions and are not something to ignore. Sleeplessness can cause a variety of health complications including high blood pressure (hypertension), diabetes, heart disease, sexual dysfunction and other chronic illnesses.
Ignoring the warning signs of sleep apnea, insomnia and other sleep disorders can be bad for your overall health.
Types of sleep disorders include:
- Sleep apnea
- Shift working disorder
- REM behavior disorder
- Restless leg syndrome
Excessive Daytime Sleepiness Disorders
Sometimes you still feel fatigued even after a good night’s sleep. Excessive daytime sleepiness disorders are also something our physicians can diagnose and treat. This type of disorder can include narcolepsy and extreme fatigue.
Talk to your primary care physician if you may benefit from a sleep specialist.
