What Are the Symptoms of a Sleep Disorder?

Sleeping disorders impact our ability to get the kind of rest necessary to continue functioning properly. Symptoms of a sleep disorder include anger and irritability, lack of capability to concentrate or focus, falling asleep during the day, anxiety and depression, and excessive daytime napping. If you have more than two of these symptoms, you should be evaluated by a sleep specialist.

How Is a Sleep Disorder Diagnosed?

The first step will be to discuss your medical history. Our doctors will ask about your sleep habits and patterns, your overall health, your medical history, and your symptoms. He may suggest that you undergo further evaluation, such as a sleep study or other tests to learn more about what is causing your sleep deprivation. Some disturbances, such as narcolepsy, may require you to have blood drawn for additional testing.

How Are Sleep Disorders Treated?

There are a number of treatments available for sleep disorders. It depends on the kind of sleep disorder with which you are diagnosed to determine the best course of treatment. For people suffering from sleep apnea, a CPAP machine or oral appliance may be prescribed. Other sleep disorders may simply need behavioral or lifestyle changes. Some may require prescription medication.
