Sleep Disorders

 

Restless Legs Syndrome

RLS is a condition where a persons legs feel extremely uncomfortable while in a passive state like sitting, laying down, or sleeping. This can make falling asleep very difficult.

Insomnias

Insomnia is a sleep disorder that is characterized by difficulty falling and/or staying asleep. People with insomnia have one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Waking up often during the night and having trouble going back to sleep
  • Waking up very early in the morning
  • Feeling tired upon waking

Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is a neurological disorder that affects your control over sleeping and being awake. A person suffering from narcolepsy will experience excessive daytime drowsiness and random bouts of falling asleep throughout the daytime that can occur at any time. A normal sleep cycle moves from lighter stages of sleep into deeper and deeper stages until reaching REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. With narcolepsy, you immediately fall into the REM cycle while sleeping and during the daytime.
