Signs and Symptoms of Sleep Disorders

Recognizing the signs and symptoms of a sleep disorder is the first step to achieving a good night's sleep. Some common signs include:

  • Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Loud snoring
  • Gasping or choking during sleep
  • Frequent awakenings during the night
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness or fatigue
  • Feeling unrefreshed upon awakening
  • Abnormal body movements during sleep
  • Problems with memory or concentration

Talk with your doctor if you repeatedly experience any of these symptoms. He or she may recommend that you see a sleep specialist or have a sleep study. This safe, painless test records your heart rate, breathing, body movements and brain patterns while you are asleep in a private,comfortable room. Using this data, doctors can recommend treatments that may help you get a good night's sleep.
