According to the National Center on Sleep Disorder Research, approximately 40 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders including sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy and restless leg syndrome. A sleep disorder can reduce your daytime productivity and increase your risk of accidents and illness.
Could You Have a Sleep Disorder?
- Does it often take you more than 30 minutes to fall asleep at night?
- Do you wake up frequently during the night - or too early in the morning - and have a hard time going back to sleep?
- When you awaken, do you feel groggy and lethargic?
- Do you feel drowsy during the day, particularly during monotonous situations?
If you answered yes to any one of these questions, you may have a sleep deficiency that is affecting you in ways you don't even realize. Most don’t recognize the importance of adequate rest and are not aware of effective methods for preventing and managing sleep problems.
Early detection of a sleep disorder could reduce your risk of asthma, pregnancy complications, heart attack, high blood pressure, memory loss and many other medical problems.
