Sleep Disorders Q & A

What are the types of sleep disorders?

A sleep disorder is any kind of chronic condition that affects or limits your sleep. Some of the most common types of sleep disorders include:

  • Parasomnia: sleepwalking
  • Narcolepsy: extreme daytime sleepiness 
  • Insomnia: difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • Sleep apnea: abnormal breathing patterns during sleep
  • Restless legs syndrome: a type of movement disorder

Some sleep disorder issues may be linked to working abnormal hours, too. This is known as shift work disorder. It’s even possible that your restless nights are linked to your diet. Drinking too much fluid before bedtime and consuming excessive caffeine may be affecting your sleep. 

How does a doctor diagnose a sleep disorder?

Premier Neurology specializes in modern diagnostic solutions for sleep disorders, so your neurologist can pinpoint the underlying issue and find the best course of treatment. One of the most efficient ways to diagnose a sleep disorder is to undergo a home-based sleep study. 

Your physician sets you up with a breathing monitor that tracks your oxygen levels and breathing effort as you breathe during sleep. The home sleep study provides your neurologist with detailed information about your sleep patterns. 

Part of your sleep disorder diagnostic testing may also include:

  • Genetic blood testing 
  • An electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • A review of your personal medical history

Your neurologist also needs to know about all of the sleep-related issues you have. Be sure to let them know if you wake up at night gasping for air, feel overly fatigued during the day, or have a hard time getting a good night’s sleep, or any other issues. 

Is there an effective treatment for my sleep disorder?

Yes! With the help of Premier Neurology, you can undergo a personalized sleep disorder management plan that’s tailored to your diagnosis. Treating a sleep disorder may include:

  • Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine
  • Prescription sleeping medications
  • Melatonin supplements
  • Dietary changes
