• Sleep Apnea - Sleep apnea is serious medical condition that if

most commonly marked by loud snoring followed by brief periods of breathing
cessation. Sleep apnea has also been shown to have lasting effects on
cardiac function, insulin utilization and obesity.
• Narcolepsy -Narcolepsy is a neurological disorder that affects
the control of sleep and wakefulness. People with narcolepsy experience
excessive daytime sleepiness and intermittent, uncontrollable episodes
of falling asleep during the daytime
• Parasomnias - Parasomnias include nightmares, bedwetting, Teeth
Grinding, Periodic Limb Movement Disorder or Restless Legs Syndrome, Night
Terrors, Sleepwalking and Sleep Talking.
• Insomnia - Difficulty falling asleep or multiple arousals through
the night are common symptoms. Insomnia is not usually chronic and is
usually treated quite easily.
• Nocturnal, or sleep-related seizures – These conditions cause
abnormal movement or behavior while sleeping. Activity ranges from awakening
from sleep for no clear reason, to violent arm and leg movement, tongue-biting,
• Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) - RLS causes uncomfortable urges to
move the legs while lying down in bed. Complaints often are connected
with a “creepy crawly” or “tingly” sensation in
the legs that is only relieved through movement. Treatment can include
exercises as well as medication.
