Most common sleep disorders

{{featured_button_text}}

An estimated 70 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder, a condition that prevents a person from getting restful sleep, and as a result, can negatively affect their health. The most common sleep disorders are:

  • Insomnia -- the inability to fall asleep or stay asleep.
  • Sleep apnea -- a disorder that causes a person to stop breathing or have very shallow breathing.
  • Restless leg syndrome -- a neurological disorder characterized by an irresistible urge to move one's body to stop uncomfortable or odd sensations.
  • Narcolepsy -- a neurological disorder caused by the brain's inability to regulate sleep-wake cycles. People with narcolepsy suffer from overwhelming daytime drowsiness.
