Sleep Disorders Can Be Disabling
While many adults report not getting enough sleep occasionally, regularly having trouble sleeping can be more than an annoyance – it can be disabling. Sleep disorders can keep you from getting the rest you need to be functional, and can lead to serious health problems. There are a variety of sleep disorders that can keep you from being able to live the life you want, affecting your ability to concentrate, causing mood swings, impairing your memory, and putting you at risk for falling asleep during the day. Sleep disorders are often linked to other serious problems as well, such as heart attacks, depression and diabetes.
There are a wide variety of sleep disorders that could be affecting your rest. Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes breathing to pause while sleeping, resulting in small wakeups, affecting the quality of sleep. Insomnia is an inability to fall asleep, or waking up several hours early without being able to go back to sleep. Narcolepsy causes excessive daytime sleepiness that is sometimes overwhelming and causes those with this disorder to nap at inappropriate times.
Symptoms of sleep disorders vary based on the diagnosis, but can include; sleep paralysis, snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, restless leg syndrome, sleep walking, mood changes, morning headaches, and an inability to sleep.
