About Sleep Disorders

To identify a potential sleep disorder, consider the following questions:

  • Do you have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep?
  • Do you toss and turn, or wake often during the night?
  • Do you snore?
  • Have you been told that you gasp or stop breathing while you sleep?
  • Do you wake up feeling tired?
  • Do you fall asleep at times when you don’t intend to: while watching television, driving or reading?

If you answered yes to two or more of these questions, you may have a sleep disorder. Read below to learn more about the sleep disorders that the ProHealth Sleep Center treats.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common and severe form of sleep apnea. This type of apnea occurs when the airway closes and remains obstructed, resulting in blocked airflow. As pressure to breathe increases, the diaphragm and chest muscles work harder. Blood pressure rises and the heart can beat irregularly or even pause for several seconds.

Narcolepsy

Insomnia

Periodic Limb Movement Disorder

Night Terrors
