A sleeping disorder occurs when there are changes in a person’s normal sleep pattern. Lack of sleep can then degrade overall health and quality of life. There are many kinds of sleeping disorders that are grouped into categories pertaining to why they happen or how they affect the sufferer.
The most common sleeping disorders are:
Insomnia is difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep through the night.
Sleep Apnea is the result of abnormal breathing patterns or snoring.
Restless Leg Syndrome (RSL) is a movement disorder often referred to as Willis-Ekbom disease. It causes uncomfortable sensations in the legs which result in frequently having to move the legs to relieve the discomfort, thus making it hard to fall asleep.
Narcolepsy is a condition causing extreme sleepiness throughout the day, and patients often fall asleep suddenly.
