Sleep problems can be caused from a number of things. Some disorders such as sleep apnea cause people to actually stop breathing for several seconds during sleep and can happen hundreds of times a night. Some other sleep problems can be the result of diet, lifestyle, illness or medications. Common examples include:
- Daytime drowsiness
- Abnormal sleep behaviors
Heartland Regional Medical Center specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. If you feel you have any of these symptoms, please contact Dr. Medhat Elsherbini at 618-998-7961.
