• Sleep Apnea

    How can you tell if you have Sleep Apnea? Ask your spouse, family, or those around you. Here are some questions to ask: 1. Are you a loud, habitual snorer, disturbing your companion? 2. Do you feel tired and groggy in the morning? 3. Do you experience sleepiness and fatigue during the day? 4. Are you overweight? 5. Have you been observed to choke, gasp, or hold your breath during sleep? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you should discuss your symptoms with your physician. Blood oxygen saturation is reduced in the entire body during apnea -- sometimes producing serious irregular heartbeats and significantly reduced oxygen to the brain. Common symptoms of Sleep Apnea are a decreased ability to concentrate; loss of energy and/or fatigue; mild to marked depression; irritability; short temper; morning headaches; forgetfulness; anxiety; and, most frequently, excessive daytime sleepiness.

  • Narcolepsy

    Narcolepsy, and related disorders, is typified by the inability to stay awake. Narcoleptics may suddenly fall asleep while they are engaged in an activity (for example, while waiting for a traffic light to change). Attacks are occasionally brought on by laughing, crying, and other strong emotions in a group setting. This illness often goes undiagnosed for years. Read More

  • Other Sleep Disorders

    Some people suffer from nightmares, night terrors, sleep walking, excessive body jerks, or uncontrollable leg movements. These people often get less than four and one-half hours of restorative sleep -something our bodies need. Even though a person spends ten hours in bed, they may only get two hours of restorative sleep. It is important to have your sleep analyzed if you find yourself waking up more tired than when you went to bed. Read More
