Are you persistently fatigued or have episodes of falling asleep unintentionally? Experts say that if you feel drowsy during the day, even during boring activities, you haven’t had enough sleep. Consider the following questions.
Are you frequently irritable and often awaken with a headache?
Do you have difficulty falling asleep night after night?
Can you fall asleep at bedtime, but often wake during the night and are unable to go right back to sleep?
You may not be aware that loud habitual snoring, besides keeping your bed partner awake, may be a warning sign that you are not breathing normally while asleep.
You may not recognize that you even have a problem, or that the problem should be considered a sleep disorder. A chronic lack of sleep can put you at risk for health problems, injury or depression.
Some behaviors, that may appear routine, can be disruptive to sleep patterns such as an urge to keep moving the legs at bedtime or a rhythmic twitching of the legs after falling asleep.
