What are Sleep Disorders?
Although people spend one-third of their lives sleeping, the importance of sleep and the impact of poor quality sleep are often overlooked. The clinical definition of a sleeping disorder is a disruptive pattern of sleep that may include difficulty falling or staying asleep, falling asleep at inappropriate times, excessive total sleep time, or abnormal behaviors associated with sleep. There are over 100 different sleeping/waking disorders have been identified and for every one there is a different causation.
There are four basic categories that each sleeping disorder can be put into:
- insomnia (unable to sleep)
- hypersomnia (too sleepy)
- sleep disruptive disorders
- and basic trouble with adhering to a normal sleep pattern.
Symptoms of Sleep Disorders
Some symptoms of having a sleeping disorder are: difficulty in falling asleep, daytime drowsiness, loud snoring, fatigue, depression, anxiety and lower leg movements during sleep.
