Do You Have a Sleep Disorder?

Forty million Americans have a sleep disorder. Are you one of them?

Signs and Symptoms of a Sleep DisorderIf you have trouble sleeping, chances are you’ve rationalized it in any number of ways.

But not resting soundly on a regular basis might be costing you more than just pleasant dreams – an untreated sleep disorder can lead to serious health problems.

Sleep Apnea

The Greek word “apnea” literally means “want of breath" – a very accurate description of this sleep disorder.


More than just an occasional bad night of sleep–short-term stress, jet lag, medical illness or emotional problems can produce a brief period of disturbed sleep. Unfortunately, many people suffer from debilitating sleeplessness that lasts for weeks, months or even years.

Common Sleep Disorders

While sleep apnea and insomnia are the most common sleep disorders, you might have less noticeable symptoms that appear only while you’re sleeping.

Children & Sleep

Does your child snore or have trouble falling asleep at night? Are teachers or caregivers mentioning that your child is excessively tired or overly excitable during the day? If so, it could be more than just typical kid behavior–your child could be suffering from a chronic or severe sleep disorder.

Women & Sleep

Whether it’s from stress, lifestyle, hormonal changes, or even a snoring spouse, women – especially those in their reproductive years – face a host of particular challenges with getting a good night’s sleep. That’s why it’s important for women like you to be aware of the types, risk factors and treatments for common sleep disorders.

Signs & Symptoms of Sleep Disorders

If you have any of these signs, you might have a sleep disorder:

  • Snoring that disturbs your bed partner
  • Inability to fall asleep at night
  • Feeling tired during the day
  • Falling asleep while driving, at work or school
