Are you Getting Enough Sleep?

There are many reasons why people don’t sleep well, but a lack of quality sleep can cause numerous issues with health and quality of life.  It is important to identify and address the root cause, as many sleep disorders are treatable.

One of the most common yet unrecognized sleep disorders is sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea causes people to stop breathing while they sleep—sometimes as many as hundreds of times per night, and those pauses in breathing can last as long as a minute.  The constant interruptions in sleep can cause difficulty with concentration and memory; weight gain; headaches; and other physical and emotional problems.

Dr. Erin Hattan is a board certified Neurologist specializing in sleep disorders for adults and children.

Discuss your possible sleep apnea with your primary care provider, and together you will decide whether a specialist is needed.
