Nearly 70 million Americans of all ages suffer from a sleep disorder of some type. It's estimated that one in three people suffer from a mild case of insomnia: finding it hard to fall or stay asleep.
Being evaluated as part of a thorough sleep study is one of the best ways to determine if you suffer from a sleep disorder. The study monitors your brain, heart, respiratory and muscle activity during sleep.
Some of the most common sleep disorders include:
- Circadian rhythm sleep disorders: trouble sleeping or waking on appropriate schedule
- Obstructive sleep apnea
- Restless legs syndrome
- REM behavior sleep disorders
- Sleep-related eating disorders
