Common Adult Sleep Disorders


Mercy Sleep Disorder Centers diagnose and treat all major sleep disorders in both adults and children, including the following:

Snoring and sleep apnea
His snoring may be keeping you awake, but it could be killing him. Loud snoring can be annoying, but it may also signal a serious medical condition called sleep apnea - a condition in which breathing stops repeatedly throughout the night. Left untreated, sleep apnea can contribute to excessive daytime sleepiness and trigger high blood pressure, heart failure and stroke.

Insomnia
Everyone has an occasional night of poor sleep due to life's stresses. But when insomnia lasts for more than a month, it may be time to seek professional help. Insomnia can be brought on by stress, depression, medications, irregular sleep schedules and physical illness. Persistent insomnia can leave you feeling tired and irritable, and the worry you experience about your sleep disorder may only make things worse.

Periodic leg movements
Involuntary leg twitching and jerking can disrupt your sleep, leaving you tired and sleepy during the day. Cramping and leg discomfort are other symptoms of this common sleep problem.

Narcolepsy
Narcolepsy is a neurological condition characterized by daytime sleep "attacks," excessive sleepiness and lack of energy. If you have this disorder, you may also find that your muscles weaken when you are angry, surprised or amused. Other symptoms may include vivid, disturbing dreams or muscle paralysis as you are falling asleep at night or awakening in the morning.
