Symptoms that Suggest a Common Sleep Disorder

July 21, 2016
Stress or illness can disrupt sleep, but this disruption is usually temporary. A more serious sleep disorder could cause significant problems with management of emotions and productivity levels at work and at home. A neurologist can provide assistance with recognizing symptoms and treating common disorders.

Typical Symptoms

Common Disorders

Insomnia, the inability to fall asleep or stay asleep, is a common issue for many people. Insomnia might occur due to medication, or it could be connected to a mental health condition such as anxiety.

Some people have a problem called Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder. This issue involves a delay in the typical biological clock that sets people’s waking and sleeping schedules. In this situation, a person might fall asleep and wake up about six hours after the typical times people go to bed and get up.

Anyone struggling with symptoms of a sleep disorder should contact a neurologist to receive a full examination.
