Is a good night’s sleep only a dream for you? We can help…
You are not alone. Did you know that one in four American adults have some type of sleep problem? From fatigue and slowed reflexes to impaired mental acuity and even depression, lack of restful and restorative sleep can affect every aspect of a person’s life. If you are one of the more than 100 million Americans who have trouble sleeping, help is closer than you think.
How do I know if I have a sleep problem?
Do any of the following apply to you?
- Do you snore?
- Is your snoring interrupted by silence or followed by a gasp or snort?
- Do you ever fall asleep while driving, at work or during waking hours?
- Do you regularly have trouble concentrating or remembering?
- Are you experiencing mood or behavior changes?
- Do you often wake up with a headache?
- Has your interest in sex declined?
- Are you sleepy or fatigued during the day?
If you answered yes to any of the above, your symptom(s) may be caused by sleep apnea or some other disorder and medical attention is important!
It is important to talk with your healthcare provider about your sleep. Sleep disorders usually don’t go away and often worsen in time. Treatment can dramatically improve your health and quality of life. Often it is necessary to perform an overnight sleep study in order to make a comprehensive diagnosis of whether or not a sleep disorder is present.

There are over 80 different sleep disorders. Some if left untreated may increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke or accidents.
Snoring is a common problem, and loud disruptive snoring can be a symptom of a more serious sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea.
Insomnia, another common problem, is the inability to fall asleep, or to stay asleep.
