Why not try the questionnaire?

  • Do you snore loudly?
  • Do you notice or have been told of any leg or arm twitching which causes sleep disturbance?
  • Have you been told you gasp for air or stop breathing at night?
  • Do you wake up with a headache? Do you feel tired during the day?
  • Do you fall asleep at inappropriate times, such as while driving or during a meeting?
  • Do you nap frequently during the day? And, if so are the naps refreshing?

If you answered "Yes" to any of the questions, you may be suffering from a Sleep Disorder.

It's a fact that for more than 50 million Americans, a good nights sleep is only a dream.

These individuals suffer from one or more sleep disorders:

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (most common) – breathing irregularities and possibly complete cessation of breathing during sleep. Primary symptom can be loud snoring and can be life threatening.

Insomnia – inability to fall asleep stay asleep or both. Periodic Leg Movements – brief muscle contractions that cause leg jerks, which can arouse an individual, just enough to provide the perception of light sleep or restless sleep.

Narcolepsy – excessive daytime sleepiness with recurrent daytime naps, which may or may not be associated with Cataplexy (loss of postural reflexes).

There are still others, however these are the most common.
