How is Your Sleep? Do you find you are feeling tired, fatigued or suffer from poor concentration? Do you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep?
Have you been told you snore or gasp for air during sleep?
If this sounds like you or your sleep partner, you may be suffering from one or more sleep disorders. A few of the more common sleep disorders are: insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy and movement disorders.
Left untreated, sleep disorders may increase the risk or severity of:
- High blood pressure/stroke
- Heart failure/heart attack
- Type 2 diabetes
If one of these symptoms or health-related issues are affecting you, talk with your doctor about setting up an appointment with a sleep specialist.
