How do I know if I have a sleep disorder?
Evaluation by a physician is the best way to confirm whether you have a sleep disorder. However, there are some questions you can ask yourself before scheduling an appointment.
If you can answer "yes" to any of these questions, you may be experiencing a sleep disorder:
- Do you wake up at night and cannot go back to sleep?
- Do you lie awake for more than half an hour before falling asleep?
- Are you having trouble at work or school because of sleepiness?
- Do you fall asleep during the day, even after a good night's sleep?
- Do you snore loudly?
- Do you have trouble keeping your legs still at night?
