Do you suffer from a sleep disorder?

Could you be one of the millions of people who are unaware that a diagnosable disorder is at fault for their trouble sleeping? If you exhibit any of the following symptoms, you may benefit from treatment from a qualified neurologist / sleep specialist.

  • Difficulty remaining awake throughout your day
  • Frequent yawning
  • Waking during the night and not being able to fall back asleep
  • Headaches, particularly upon waking
  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Chronic, loud snoring

A sleep disorder can have a profound negative impact on your overall health and quality of life. If you exhibit any of the above symptoms, consult with your doctor about coming in to be screened for sleep disorders.

In the meantime, try these tips for getting a restful night’s sleep:

  • Refrain from heavy meals and alcohol within 3 hours of going to bed.
  • Get into bed around the same time each night.
  • Set up a quiet, dark, and cool sleeping environment.
  • Exercise regularly earlier on in the day.
  • Quit smoking if you are a smoker.
  • Lose weight if you are overweight.
  • Eat a balanced diet consisting of fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy, and foods such as turkey, nuts, and avocados that contain the sleep-promoting substance tryptophan.

Diagnostic testing and treatments

After discussing your symptoms with the doctor, the next step in your care will likely be a sleep study performed to assess your sleep quality and habits.

You will then receive an appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan based on Dr. Khan’s expert analysis of your study results. Depending on your sleep condition, you might be prescribed medicine or receive a device to improve your sleep quality right away.

If your sleep study indicates that you have obstructive sleep apnea, a particularly dangerous sleep disorder, you may be deemed a candidate for a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) device.

Obstructive sleep apnea is a life-threatening condition that interferes with your ability to breathe properly while you are asleep. Your new CPAP device will be worn over your nose to keep your airway unobstructed so that you will not stop breathing in your sleep.

Don’t risk losing your life if you, a loved one, or your doctor suspects you might suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. Get evaluated and treated to protect your livelihood and avoid the health consequences of the condition including:

  • High blood pressure
  • Increased pulse
  • Insulin resistance, potentially resulting in diabetes
  • Higher risk of stroke and death due to heart disease
  • Heightened risk of deathly automobile accidents

the Arizona Institute of Neurology & Polysomnography.
