How do I know if I have a sleep disorder?

Sleep disorders can severely affect your quality of life, as the body needs sleep for restoration so it can function properly.

Sleep disorders may indicate a serious illness, as people who are affected by sleep apnea may also be affected by cardiac problems and diabetes.

Symptoms of a Sleep Disorder:

  • excessive sleepiness during waking hours
  • difficulty concentrating
  • irritability and depression
  • pauses in breathing during sleep
  • chronic loud snoring – a sign of sleep apnea
  • frequent awakenings
  • coughing or gasping for air during sleep
  • restless body movements
  • unusual behavior during sleep (ie: kicking, punching, shouting during sleep)

What if I show symptoms of a sleep disorder?

If you or your bed partner exhibits symptoms of a sleep disorder, discuss your concerns with your primary physician. You may be a candidate for an overnight sleep study at the Sleep Disorders Center at Hunterdon Medical Center where we can evaluate, diagnose and begin treatment in one 12-hour period. Call 908-237-4080 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
