Types of Sleep Disorders

American adults struggle with a variety of sleep disorders. Depending on your diagnosis, we'll customize the treatment to your unique needs. Here's a brief overview of common sleep disorders in adults:

  • Insomnia—This disorder is characterized by the inability to fall or stay asleep. In many cases, insomnia is the result of jet lag, but in others, it can continue for aprolonged period of time. Up to 50 percent of adults will experience insomniaat one point or another.
  • Sleep Apnea—Patients with sleep apnea experience pauses in their breathing while asleep. This condition is quite serious since it causes the body to take in less oxygen than it needs.
  • Movement Disorders—Sleep movement disorders, such as restless leg syndrome, are involuntary movements that interfere with your quality of sleep.

How Are Sleep Disorders Diagnosed?

Diagnosing sleep disorders in adults is a complex process. We use several steps to ensure we reach the proper diagnosis. Our team starts with a general medical exam to identify any underlying issues. Then, we ask you to keep a log of your sleeping habits and any problems you experience. Based on those results, we may order blood work and other tests to confirm a diagnosis. If you notice any of the following symptoms, talk to one of our professionals about testing for and diagnosing a sleep disorder:

  • Difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep
  • Constant fatigue
  • Changes in breathing patterns
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Lack of concentration
  • Weight gain
  • Changes in sleep schedule
  • Excessive napping
