Help for Getting a Good Night's Rest

One out of three Americans has a sleep disorder that makes sleeping or waking hours miserable. Common sleep problems include:

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea
  • Insomnia
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Rapid Eye Movement Sleep Behavior Disorder
  • Narcolepsy
  • Sleepwalking
  • Sleep Terrors

If you have trouble sleeping, your primary-care provider may refer you to a sleep medicine specialist or you can make an appointment directly.

Sleep medicine specialists are medical physicians who have completed their education in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Neurology, Psychiatry or Pulmonology and have received extensive training in sleep-related issues.

Part of diagnosing issues include sleep studies, which are done in sleep labs. With the help of high-tech monitoring equipment and a sleep technician who watches and records your sleep patterns, your sleep medicine specialist can determine the kind of therapies that might help.

Are You Sleepy?

If you wake up tired, feel sleepy during the day or can't get to sleep at night, talk to your doctor. Poor rest may either be a sign of a problem or may lead to one.
