A condition in which you have brief pauses of breathing throughout the night, snoring, snorting and gasping for air. Sleep apnea can result in daytime sleepiness and may cause high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.
A condition in which you have difficulty falling or staying asleep or you wake earlier than normal. Insomnia can be caused by a variety of medical or behavioral factors such as rotating work shifts, stress, tension or poor sleep habits.
Excessive daytime sleepiness
A condition in which you struggle to stay awake during the day, resulting in reduced productivity, memory problems or depression.
Nocturnal myoclonus and restless leg syndrome
A disorder that causes your arms or legs to thrash or move despite attempts to keep your limbs still or to make them comfortable. You may experience aching muscles upon waking up or unpleasant (creeping, crawling) feelings in your legs when you lie down.
With this condition, you may sleepwalk, talk in your sleep or have night terrors and severe recurrent nightmares.
This disorder causes you to fall asleep suddenly, many times during the day.
After diagnostic testing you will follow up with your referring physician. Short-term treatment is available for insomnia. Other sleep disorders may require ongoing treatments such as sleep appliances, medication or surgery. Our sleep team will work closely with you and your primary care physician to recommend the appropriate treatment.
