Common Sleep Disorders and Associated Symptoms
Some sleep disorders may be symptoms of existing medical conditions. If left untreated, sleep disorders can lead to more serious health problems. Most sleep problems can be diagnosed and effectively managed.
Sleep Apnea is a serious disorder in which the person stops breathing repeatedly during sleep. These interruptions can last 10 seconds to 2 minutes. Heavy snoring is one possible symptom of sleep apnea, or pauses in the breathing pattern. Other signs may include excessive daytime sleepiness or irritability. The risk of undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea includes heart attack, stroke, irregular heartbeat and high blood pressure.
Insomnia means having difficulty falling or staying asleep. Many factors may contribute to insomnia, including chronic depression, anxiety, temporary stress, noise or other health conditions or medications.
Restless Leg Syndrome results in aching or tingling sensation in the legs causing frequent movement. This serious condition can lead up to insomnia and periodic limb movement syndrome, which disrupts sleep and causes daytime drowsiness.
Narcolepsy & Other Hypersomnias are disorders of the central nervous system that causes excessive daytime sleepiness even after a good night’s sleep. This disorder may also cause cataplexy, sleep paralysis or hallucinations before falling asleep.
