Sleep Disorders

Sleep-related complaints are only second to pain-complaints as a cause to seek medical attention. If it’s hard for you to fall asleep at night, you wake up feeling tired, or feel very sleepy during the day you might have a sleep disorder. The most common kinds of sleep disorders are insomnia, sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome and narcolepsy. If you suspect you have a sleep disorder, it is important to speak with a mental health clinician and or physician to help you identify the difficulties you are having with sleep. If your health care professional suspects you have a sleep disorder, he or she may refer you to a sleep disorder clinic or sleep study. There are various types of talk therapy that can also help with sleep disorders such as CBT and mindfulness meditation.
