You may have a sleep disorder if you answer "Yes" to even one of the following questions:

  • Do you feel tired all the time?
  • Do you awaken with a morning headache on a frequent basis?
  • Have others complained that your heavy snoring keeps them awake?
  • Do you have trouble falling asleep?
  • Do you find yourself waking too early and not being able to fall back asleep?
  • Do you experience involuntary, repetitive, jerking movements that interrupt your sleep?
  • Have you experienced sudden muscular weakness brought on by a strong emotion such as anger, surprise, laughter or sadness?
  • Would you consider yourself impatient, irritable, depressed or anxious?

Obtaining a proper diagnosis is the first step to a better night's sleep. Further evaluation and a possible sleep study conducted by a sleep specialist at the Aurora Sleep Medicine Center is the right place to start. Find a Center in your community
