About Sleep Disorders
How do I know if I have sleep apnea? Sleep is a time of rest for the entire body, renewing a person’s mental and physical health each day. So, when you don’t get enough sleep, your whole life is affected. Fatigue can cause significant health issues, personality changes and irritability – even lead to accidents and injuries.
If you feel you aren’t getting enough sleep and experience excessive daytime sleepiness, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder. Ascension’s Sleep Disorders Centers can help you get the rest you need. We have doctors who specialize in sleep-related medical concerns.
Common sleep disturbances treated by our sleep specialists include:
- Sleep apnea
- Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
- Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PLMD)
Left untreated, sleep problems can contribute to significant health problems such as high blood pressure, irregular heart rhythms or heart disease, stroke, heart attack, diabetes, clinical depression, and other serious conditions.
