Good quality sleep should be a luxury; it’s a right.
How’s your sleep lately? If you said “not good,” you aren’t alone. Most Americans report poor or suboptimal sleep. If your sleep is impacting your health, performance and day-to-day routine, then this might be the right time to talk to our The Villages, FL, board-certified sleep medicine doctor Dr. Juan Albino and Village Sleep Lab team to find out if a sleep study is right for you.
You Can’t Fall Asleep or Stay Asleep
Do you toss and turn night after night? Do you find that you struggle to fall asleep or that you wake up throughout the night? If you’re dealing with these symptoms for days or weeks, you could be dealing with insomnia.
Suppose you also notice paralysis right before or after waking up or falling asleep, or you get up frequently in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. In that case, you may want to talk with our The Villages, FL, team to see if a sleep study could provide insight into what could be causing these nocturnal issues.
You’re a Chronic Snorer
There are many reasons why someone may snore, but if you find yourself snoring night after night, this could be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, a sleep disorder that can also cause serious health problems if left untreated. If you are a loud, chronic snorer who wakes up exhausted or has a bed partner who regularly complains about your snoring, you owe it to yourself to undergo a sleep study to find out if you could have sleep apnea.
You’re Tired All the Day
Another sign of a sleep problem is that you wake up exhausted all the time. If you get the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep a night and still feel tired all the time, a sleep study could tell you what’s going on. You may also want to get a sleep study if you don’t have the energy to get through daily tasks or you need to nap in the afternoon or drink lots of caffeine to stay awake.
Getting good sleep shouldn’t be difficult. Getting a sleep study from our practice in The Villages, FL, can shed valuable insight into sleep problems that could be holding you back from the quality sleep you deserve.
