Sleep Disorders Center


Nearly everyone experiences sleep problems sometimes. It's the frequent or recurring sleep problems that may be a sign of a disorder that may benefit from a doctor's evaluation and, if recommended, a sleep study in our lab.

Sleep disorders have common symptoms. Some symptoms are difficult to be aware of if you sleep alone. If you have concerns about your sleep and have a sleep partner, ask them if they notice you exhibiting any of the symptoms below. A sleep study can help with documenting symptoms and/or help if you typically sleep alone.

Common sleep disorder symptoms

  • Daytime sleepiness or general fatigue
  • Loud snoring
  • Difficulty sleeping: falling asleep, staying asleep, waking too early or waking unrefreshed
  • Pauses in breathing (without a study, typically only a sleep partner can help you be aware of this)
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Irritability or depression
    Morning headaches
  • Hypertension or high blood pressure
  • Sleepwalking or talking in sleep
  • Sleep and other chronic conditions

Many common chronic conditions and diseases are highly linked to sleeping problems. Weight gain or bariatric surgery, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), heart conditions and cancer treatment can all impact sleep quality.
