Sleep Help at Sleep Center
The Sleep Center at Comprehensive understands that many people ignore sleep issues that can often be treated, dismissing the challenges as something caused by stress, being busy or as just part of life that cannot be avoided. Given people have been sleeping their entire lives, it can be difficult to give much consideration to something that feels so automatic. And with sleep disorders, they can begin gradually, feeling almost normal, making breaking out them even more difficult.
Sleep disorders, left undiagnosed and untreated, can lead to other health issues, as well challenges with work performance, relationships, while bringing other exhaustion-driven negative aspects of life. Good news is that most sleep issues that cause these problems can be treated, it’s just a matter of recognizing them and having them formally diagnosed by the Sleep Center at Comprehensive.
How Does One Recognize a Sleep Disorder?
If you or a loved one feel overly tired during the day, a true sleep disorder may be present. It can be tough to tell if something is off with sleep if the issue has developed over time – especially if you’re tired from lack of sleep. The best way to think through the potential of a sleep disorder is by going through a checklist to identify a potential problem, where you can also count on your partner to help you find clarity as you work through the list.
If you have one or more of the following challenges with sleep, get an appointment at Sleep Center at Comprehensive and see how we can help:
- Checking the Clock – If you regularly take more than 30 minutes each night to fall asleep you may have a sleep disorder.
- Up All Night – If you regularly wake up several times each night, and then have trouble falling back to sleep, or you wake up too early in the morning, you may have a sleep disorder.
- Can’t Shake the Fog: You may have a sleep disorder if you often feel sleepy during the day, take frequent naps, or fall asleep at the wrong times during the day.
- Ask Someone Close to You: If your bed partner says when you sleep, you snore loudly, snort, gasp, make choking sounds, or stop breathing for short periods, you may have a sleep disorder.
- Tingling & Crawling Sensations – If you experience creeping, tingling, or crawling feelings in your legs or arms that are relieved by moving or massaging them, especially in the evening and when trying to fall asleep, then you may have a sleep disorder.
- Herky Jerky – If your bed partner notices that your legs or arms jerk often during sleep, then you may have a sleep disorder.
- Vivid/Dreamlike – If you have vivid, dreamlike experiences while falling asleep or dozing off, then you may have a sleep disorder.
- Laughing Not Fun – If you have episodes of sudden muscle weakness when you are angry or fearful, or when you laugh then you may have a sleep disorder.
- Immobility – Feel as though you cannot move when you first wake up may be the sign of a sleep disorder.
