Problems Sleeping

A person is often unaware that he or she has a sleep problem.  As a result, sleep problems go undiagnosed and untreated for many years.

In order to understand your sleep and any possible problems, a doctor needs to look at the activity of the brain and body systems and their functions throughout the night.

After an exam your doctor will recommend a sleep doctor that will test for common sleep disorders that include:

  • Insomnia
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Periodic limb movement
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Narcolepsy
