Having Sleep Disorders Is A Condition That Changes The Way You Sleep
Sleep disorders affect your overall health and quality of life. Sleep deprivation can affect your ability to drive safely and increase your risk of other health problems such as cardiovascular disease and Heart failure.
Common signs and symptoms you may be suffering from one include snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, irregular breathing, and increased movement during sleep. Other symptoms can include an irregular sleep and wake cycle and difficulty falling asleep.
There are many different types of sleep disorders. Doctors separate them into categories to explain why they happen and how they can affect you.
Sleep disorders can also be grouped according to behaviors, problems with your natural sleep-wake cycles, breathing problems, difficulty sleeping, or how sleepy you feel during the day.
Common types of sleep disorders include:
Sleep apnea, in which you experience abnormal patterns in breathing while you are asleep. There are several types of sleep apnea and the most dangerous one is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
- Restless legs syndrome (RLS), a type of sleep movement disorder. Restless legs syndrome, also called Willis-Ekbom disease, causes an uncomfortable sensation and an urge to move the legs while you try to fall asleep.
- Narcolepsy, a condition characterized by excessive sleepiness during the day and falling asleep suddenly during the day.
- Insomnia, in which you have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep throughout the night.

The room where you sleep for the study reminds you of a 5-star hotel suite. The room comes with a great bed, private restroom, and a machine that plays various nature sounds (rain, thunderstorms, running streams) to help you fall asleep. Great staff. Very professional.”
