There are many different disorders related to sleeping or waking up. But sleep disorders are usually one of four main categories:
Trouble falling asleep and staying asleep (insomnia)
Constant trouble with staying awake during the day
Problems with sticking to a normal, routine sleep schedule
Unusual behaviors while sleeping (such as sleepwalking)
These sleep disorders can have a major impact on a person’s day to day life. Often a problem with sleep is due to another medical disorder like depression, anxiety or obstructive sleep apnea. A thorough evaluation by a qualified physician to determine the cause of the sleep problem is the most important step in the treatment process.
