Most people with sleep disorders don’t even know they have one. They are tired all day, fall asleep in their chairs or movies or they snore heavily. The idea that there is healthy sleep and unhealthy sleep has been slowly making its way into mainstream America since 1980. Sleep apnea causes people to stop breathing while asleep and restless leg syndrome is characterized by an urge to move one’s body, most commonly the legs, to stop uncomfortable sensations like burning, itching or tickling in the muscles. Insomnia is also a common sleep disorder and all three of these conditions as well as 85 others can have serious health consequences and can be helped by having an evaluation with Dr. Grauke.
