Common Sleep Disorders
There are more than 70 distinct sleep disorders. The experts at the Parker Adventist Hospital Sleep Disorders Center can diagnose and treat these among other less common disorders.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
The person who has OSA usually has loud, frequent snoring and experiences pauses in breathing as they sleep. Often, those with OSA also have daytime sleepiness.
This is characterized by attacks of an irresistible urge to sleep at unexpected times and severe daytime sleepiness, often also accompanied by intermittent muscle weakness and sleep-related vivid dreams.
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) and Periodic Limb Movements (PLM)
These are involuntary leg or arm movements before and during sleep which disrupt sleep patterns and can lead to daytime sleepiness.
This is the name for a group of sleep issues including sleepwalking, night terrors and acting out dreams.
The inability to fall asleep or stay asleep is the most commonly reported sleep disorder.
