Common Sleep Disorders

-Insomnia: Do you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep? Do you wake up too early, and are tired when you wake up? Insomnia can deplete your energy, mood, health, work, and quality of life.

-Jet lag: Do you travel frequently across various time zones? If so, you may find yourself with a temporary sleep problem because of a disruption in your body clock (circadian rhythms). This internal clock tells you when to get up and when to sleep. Jet lag can leave you feeling fatigued, unwell, unable to remain alert and having gastrointestinal problems.

-Narcolepsy: Do you often experience serious daytime drowsiness and fall asleep throughout your day? If so, you may have narcolepsy which can interfere with your day-to-day activities which are dangerous if you are driving or operating machinery.

-Restless legs syndrome: Do you often experience an overwhelming urge to move your legs because of some unpleasant feeling when you are sitting or lying down at night that only feels better when you move your legs? This condition can interfere with good sleep and adversely affect your day to day activities.

-Sleep apnea: Do you often find yourself snoring loudly or waking up during the night with trouble breathing? Does your partner complain about your snoring? Sleep apnea is an ongoing disruption of your breathing when you sleep and is a potentially serious sleep condition leading to health issues.

-Snoring: Do you often find yourself snoring or have to listen to your partner complaining about your snoring? If so, you might have a health condition that causes you to snore.

If you have any of these symptoms, Dr. Abroon may recommend an at-home sleep study test or an in-office study to monitor your sleep. Our in-office sleep study measures your brain waves, heart rate, breathing patterns, oxygen levels, and movements after which Dr. Abroon can determine the cause of your sleep disorder and recommend effective treatment. You deserve a good night’s sleep!
