- Sleep Apnea – Sleep apnea is serious medical condition that if left untreated can have an impact on long term health. Apnea events are most commonly marked by loud snoring followed by brief periods of breathing cessation. Sleep apnea has also been shown to have lasting effects on cardiac function, insulin utilization and obesity.
- Narcolepsy -Narcolepsy is a neurological disorder that affects the control of sleep and wakefulness. People with narcolepsy experience excessive daytime sleepiness and intermittent, uncontrollable episodes of falling asleep during the daytime
- Parasomnias – Parasomnias include nightmares, bedwetting, Teeth Grinding, Periodic Limb Movement Disorder or Restless Legs Syndrome, Night Terrors, Sleepwalking and Sleep Talking.
- Insomnia – Difficulty falling asleep or multiple arousals through the night are common symptoms. Insomnia is not usually chronic and is usually treated quite easily.
- Nocturnal, or sleep-related seizures – These conditions cause abnormal movement or behavior while sleeping. Activity ranges from awakening from sleep for no clear reason, to violent arm and leg movement, tongue-biting, and urination.
- Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) – RLS causes uncomfortable urges to move the legs while lying down in bed. Complaints often are connected with a “creepy crawly” or “tingly” sensation in the legs that is only relieved through movement. Treatment can include exercises as well as medication.
