Sleep Disorders are More Common Than You Might Think
More than eighty-four different types of sleep disorders keep Tennesseans awake at night. The names of several disorders may be familiar, such as insomnia, sleep apnea, and narcolepsy. Others may not be as recognizable, such as Restless Legs Syndrome, parasomnias, and sleep/wake cycle disorders.
Unfortunately, so many people suffer undiagnosed and without treatment and we at HHC strive to correct that. Oftentimes people live with their discomfort, unaware that there is an effective solution or treatment available. Some of the symptoms of sleep-related disorders may include:
- Daytime sleepiness
- Depression and/or anxiety
- Memory difficulties
- Sexual dysfunction
- Inability to sleep soundly
- Heavy snoring
- Falling asleep unexpectedly
