Sleep disorders are conditions that result in changes in the way that you sleep.
A sleep disorder can affect your overall health, safety and quality of life. Sleep deprivation can affect your ability to drive safely and increase your risk of other health problems.
Some of the signs and symptoms of sleep disorders include excessive daytime sleepiness, irregular breathing or increased movement during sleep. Other signs and symptoms include an irregular sleep and wake cycle and difficulty falling asleep.
There are many different types of sleep disorders. They're often grouped into categories that explain why they happen or how they affect you. Sleep disorders can also be grouped according to behaviors, problems with your natural sleep-wake cycles, breathing problems, difficulty sleeping or how sleepy you feel during the day.
Insomnia is a sleep disorder in individuals who have a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep. They may also wake up too early in the morning or feel a sense of tiredness upon waking. Insomnia can be either acute or chronic, as well as primary or secondary. Primary Insomnia is a difficulty with sleeping that is not related to any outside health problem or condition, while secondary is the result of a separate condition (such as asthma, depression, medication, or pain).
Narcolepsy is a neurological disorder in which the brain fails to control its sleep-wake cycles. Those who experience this disorder may wake from a night of sleep feeling rested, but then quickly feel a sense of tiredness during the day. They may even fall asleep while doing everyday activities such as driving, talking, or eating. When dealing with Narcolepsy, it’s not uncommon to experience attributes of sleep while you are awake. This could include muscle weakness or numbness that is present to protect the body during REM, as well as dream activity during waking hours.
Much like it sounds, Restless Leg Syndrome causes unpleasant sensations in the legs that make one feel a compulsive need to move them. This typically onsets later in the evenings or at night, or after a person has been sitting still for a long period of time. This disorder can make falling asleep or staying asleep difficult, as it is most present at night when one lays down to rest. Due to this, side effects can include tiredness that makes it difficult to perform or concentrate during the day.
