Lake Health Blogs

Is it hard for you to fall asleep or stay asleep though the night? Do you wake up feeling tired or feel very sleepy during the day, even if you have had enough sleep? You might have a sleep disorder. The most common kinds are:

  • Insomnia - a hard time falling or staying asleep
  • Sleep apnea - breathing interruptions during sleep
  • Restless legs syndrome - a tingling or prickly sensation in the legs
  • Narcolepsy - daytime "sleep attacks"

Nightmares, night terrors, sleepwalking, sleep talking, head banging, wetting the bed and grinding your teeth are kinds of sleep problems called parasomnias. There are treatments for most sleep disorders. Sometimes just having regular sleep habits can help.

Did you know that Lake Health has two sleep centers?  The nationally accredited sleep medicine program at Lake Health has over 15 years of experience diagnosing and treating a broad spectrum of sleep disorders. Both sleep centers feature four private rooms in a quiet and comfortable atmosphere where patients are monitored overnight for suspected sleep disorders, such as insomnia, obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy, snoring, sleep walking and restless legs syndrome.  Accredited by the American Association of Sleep Medicine, the centers offer the most advanced monitoring and diagnostic technology as well as an expert staff of physicians board certified in sleep medicine, professional registered polysomnography technicians, registered respiratory therapists, pulmonologists, otolaryngologists (ENT) and psychologists.  The Sleep Centers are conveniently located at:
