Take the Snore Survey

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

The most common disorder we treat is sleep apnea. This is caused by a relaxation of the muscles in the back of the throat that obstructs the airway and stops breathing during sleep. Although the brain wakes the person multiple times during the night, it’s often forgotten by morning. Loud snoring can accompany other symptoms and sufferers may wake up with headaches due to reduced oxygen in the blood. They often feel extremely tired during waking hours.

Do I have a sleep disorder?

Sleep disorders are common, yet often they go undiagnosed for years. Sufferers may be unaware that their normal sleep time is being disrupted and then attribute daytime tiredness to other factors. If you wake up feeling groggy, feel tired most of the day, or fall asleep at unusual times, you may have a sleep disorder.

Lack of sleep can worsen or trigger serious conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and more.

With effective treatment of your sleep disorder, you may avoid these conditions altogether or greatly reduce your risk. Most people find immediate relief, and many can enjoy a good night’s sleep again.

Depending on the type of disorder you have, treatment may include weight loss, oral night splints, medication, a continuous positive airway support device (CPAP), or surgery.

Are you suffering from symptoms of a sleep disorder? Find out now.

  1. Are you a loud and habitual snorer?
  2. Do you feel tired and groggy upon awakening?
  3. Are you often sleepy during waking hours or do you have trouble falling asleep quickly?
  4. Are you overweight or is your neck size 17” or larger for men, 16” or larger for women?
  5. Has anyone told you that you choke, gasp, or hold your breath during sleep?

If you answered yes to two or more of these questions, you may be experiencing symptoms that are related to a sleep disorder.

Most Common Sleep Disorders

Restless Leg Syndrome

This neurological movement disorder is characterized by uncomfortable, sometimes painful, sensations in the legs that produce an overwhelming desire to move. The sensations can feel like throbbing, pulling, tingling, crawling, or creeping. Symptoms typically worsen during periods of relaxation—including sleep.

Narcolepsy

An overwhelming desire to sleep at inappropriate times, narcolepsy
causes a number of other symptoms, such as:

  • Frequent daytime sleepiness
  • Sudden loss of muscle tone or control
  • Hallucinations that occur when falling asleep and waking up
  • Inability to talk or move for a minute when falling asleep or waking up
  • Performance of routine tasks without conscious awareness
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Atypical Work Hours
  • Gender (males are twice as likely to be diagnosed with sleep apnea)
