Sleep Disorders may range from a variety of problems such as:
- Breathing problems: Sleep apnea, a condition in which breathing becomes shallow or stops while you sleep. It is usually associated with loud snoring and daytime sleepiness. If left untreated, sleep apnea may cause heart disease, obesity, stroke, and increased mortality.
- Neurological problems: Narcolepsy, a condition that causes sudden uncontrollable sleepiness, vivid dreaming, "sleep attacks," a loss of muscle control and sometime hallucinations.
- Insomnia: The inability to initiate and or maintain sleep. Often, this may be due to emotional or situational circumstances. If it lasts more than a few weeks, you may have a more serious problem.
These are some of the most common problems associated with 84 of the known sleeping disorders.
Symptoms of a sleep disorder may include:
- daytime sleepiness
- drowsiness while driving
- difficulty concentrating
- morning headache
Sleep Disorder Centers at Broward Health Medical Center, Broward Health Coral Springs, and Borward Health North can help you diagnose and treat any sleep disorder issues.
