Sleep Disturbances Information

Many situations can cause disturbances in your sleep patterns, and often simple lifestyle changes can dramatically help to improve your sleep quality. But while most people experience occasional periods of sleep disturbance, many others suffer from disorders such as chronic Insomnia, Restless Legs Syndrome, Excessive Daytime Sleepiness, and Sleep Apnea. In these cases, your doctor may recommend that you see a specialist in order to diagnose and treat your disorder.

Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Breathing through a narrow airway causes a vacuum that pulls on the throat’s soft tissue causing it to vibrate, which creates the snoring sound.

Restless Legs Syndrome

This condition is characterized by uncomfortable, unsettled, restless sensations in the legs or feet usually while lying in bed at night before going to sleep.


Difficulty falling asleep is known as insomnia and can be caused by many different factors.


Parasomnias refer to a variety of disruptive sleep-related events that occur only or predominantly during the main sleep period.

Excessive Daytime Sleepiness

Excessive daytime sleppiness is a tendency to sleep at inappropriate times regardless of activity or circumstance.  


It has recently become clear that there seems to be an association between sleep disturbances and ADHD in children and adults.
