Sleep is one of, if not the most vital processes that our body’s need. Sleep makes sure our physical, mental, and emotional health are all good and in check, however, there are certain disorders that impact one’s ability to rest properly and can affect their wellbeing. In this article, we will cover some common sleep disorders and their symptoms. While these descriptions are not a diagnosis, if you find yourself or a loved one with any of these be sure to visit a doctor for proper examination and care.
Narcolepsy- narcolepsy is characterized as those who feel excessively tired during the day even while getting proper sleep the night before. This can lead to, “sleep attacks” where one seems to fall asleep instantly for a few minutes.
Sleep Apnea- those with sleep apnea suffer from a blockage of their upper airway when they sleep. This can lead them to waking up choking or struggling to breath. Heavy snoring is also a symptom of sleep apnea.
Restless Leg Syndrome- RLS is a powerful urge to move your legs during rest. This is seen through painful sensations like itching and throbbing in the legs when laying in bed. This makes sleep incredibly difficult and painful.
