Sleeping Disorders On The Rise; Do I Have One?
Sleep is synonymous with rest. Your body needs it. Your mind need it. Deep, restful sleep is essential to the restorative cycle in order for the body to recover and continue functioning normally. If you are not sleeping continuously through the night, you may have a sleeping disorder.
Secrets to naturally improving your quality of sleep have long been identified; yet it is estimated one in three adults are affected by a sleeping disorder. One of the secrets to improving your quality of sleep is to get plenty of it. Seven to eight hours a night is about average.
So what is it besides noisy neighbors, loud parties, caffeine, and living close to an airport that keeps us awake? Anxiety and stress play a role in preventingyour ability to relax enough to fall asleep. Being roused by a bad dream happens on occasion, but more often than not, we are able to fall back to sleep after such disturbances.
Sleeping disorders areconsidered to be one of the most common health complaints. They seriously affect the physical, mental, and emotional functioning of many individuals. One of the secrets to improving your quality of sleep is to identify whether or not you suffer from a sleeping disorder. See your primary care doctor if you suspect sleeping issues may be a problem.
Don’t want to take sleeping pills to “fix” the problem? Your doctor can diagnose and recommend a special complimentary treatment such as hypnosis to remedy the situation.
What Is A Sleeping Disorder?
Any problems relating to sleep is termed a “sleeping disorder.” Inability to fall asleep, or insomnia, excessive sleep, night tremors, teeth grinding, bed wetting or enuresis, and some psychological disorders can be viewed as sleeping disorders.
Some indicators of a sleeping disorder may include feeling tired throughout the day even though you slept eight hours. Drifting off to sleep mid conversation may indicate a serious sleeping problem called narcolepsy. Living with a partner that snores, talks in his or her sleep, sleepwalks, or twitches and kicks during sleep can cause a sleep problem for you. A new medication may affect your sleeping pattern.
Your primary care physician should be seen first if you are experiencing any problems that prevent you from consistently getting restful sleep. A physician will rule out any underlying medical or psychological conditionas the source of your sleeping disorder.
Other common sleeping disorders and parasomnias have been identified in addition to those referred to above.Parasomnias describe a group of sleep disorders related to unnatural behaviors, movements, perceptions, emotions, and dreams occurring at various stages of sleep.
Those that suffer from “confusionalarousals” awake from sleep but remain in a confused state. They react slowly to commands and may have difficulty understanding questions. The episode will typically last a few minutes and is harmless. The episode can also indicate a more serious issue such as sleep apnea or restless leg syndrome.
Nightmare disorders involve deeply disturbing dreams that rouse the sufferer during “rapid eye movement” sleeping phase. The nightmares often involve a threat to survival and can progress to a worrying and a disruptive issue. This should not be confused with “night terrors” which consist of extreme panic and confusion.
