Do you sleep well? Unfortunately, your answer might very well be “no” if you are like the 50-70 million people in the United States that report experiencing sleep problems. If you think you have had a full night’s sleep yet still feel tired and unable to concentrate well the next day, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder.
Sleep and Good Health Go Hand-in-Hand
One of the most important things you can do to boost your overall health is to get a good night’s sleep. During sleep, your body and brain can devote resources to the repair and rejuvenation of cells and processes. Good rest shows up in your improved ability to learn, better memory function, better mood and outlook, and increased overall health. It also improves coordination and reaction time to events and allows you to make better decisions.
Poor Sleep Can Have Different Causes
So what is going on when night after night you continue to have fitful sleep and awaken every morning feeling like you ran marathons all night? Although sleep apnea is arguably the most well-known sleep disorder, your poor sleep could be the result of insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circadian rhythm sleep disorders, narcolepsy, or chronic fatigue syndrome, to name a few. There are so many different causes of poor sleep that it is impossible to attribute your sleepless nights to one specific disorder without a proper evaluation.
