Common Sleep Disorders
Most people who suffer from sleep disorders are not aware that their constant
fatigue and even headaches may be caused by a bad night’s sleep.
There are over 80 different kinds of sleep disorders that can cause people
to wake up at night. The most common of these is sleep apnea, where the
airway becomes blocked during sleep, causing the person to choke and awaken.
Other sleep disorders include narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome, and insomnia.
Symptoms of sleep disorders can include:
- Lack of productivity
- Scatterbrained thought
- Frequent headaches
- Lethargy and lack of energy
These kinds of symptoms are usually not reported by the patients, but by
the person they share a bed with. If your physician believes you may be
suffering from a sleep disorder, they may recommend that you undergo an
overnight sleep study called a polysomnogram to better diagnose your sleep issue.
Treatment for Sleep Disorders
One of the most common solutions for sleep disorders is the use of a continuous
positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine, which uses air pressure to force
the airway to stay open. CPAP machines are very common, as over 200,000
cases of sleep apnea alone are diagnosed each year.
