Sleep Disorder Institute Program
Can’t remember the last good night of sleep you had…
Does your tossing and turning keep you awake all night…
Has your snoring become an obstacle in your relationship with your significant other?
If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, you may be suffering from a chronic sleep disorder. You are not alone. Statistics estimate some 40 million Americans suffer from a chronic sleep disorder.
Normally, when you're awake, your brain waves show a regular rhythm. When you fall asleep, those brain waves become slower and less regular. This deep sleep state is called rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. REM sleep is when dreaming occurs. The best sleep is a mix of REM and non-REM sleep that leaves us feeling rested and refreshed the next day. However, for many people a good night sleep is a distant dream. For these people waking up feeling drained, tired, and sleepy is just another part of life. It is an unfortunate part of life that puts individuals at risk for a host of serious medical conditions.
