Sleeping Disorders

by: Damian Sofsian

If you find it difficult to fall asleep, stay asleep or are falling asleep at inappropriate times, you could very well be suffering from a sleeping disorder. According to studies, there are over one hundred types of sleep orders, some more serious than the others. Common types of sleeping disorders include insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy and restless legs syndrome or RLS.

Insomnia is a very common sleeping disorder since many people experience it. Although some people find it hard to overcome, insomnia can be cured easily through lifestyle changes, natural remedies and herbal medicines and meditation or relaxation.

Sleep apnea is another sleep disorder that can affect many people. With this type of disorder you experience breathing difficulties when you sleep. Breathing is interrupted during sleep and you show signs such as frequent waking episodes at night, disrupted breathing, gasping, gagging and choking for air during sleep.

Narcolepsy, which is sometimes confused with sleep apnea, is a chronic neurological disorder where in the central nervous system is impaired and cannot perform its function of regulating sleep. People with this disorder usually experience excessive daytime sleepiness and intermittent, uncontrollable episodes of falling asleep during the day.

Restless legs syndrome is ranked as one of the most often diagnosed types of sleeping disorders. This is characterized by a combination of symptoms of insomnia and another sleep disorder that is periodic limb movement in sleep or PLMS. These are some of the common sleep disorders that a person can suffer from. While some sleep disorders do need medical examination by your physician, others like insomnia, can be treated at home with methods mentioned above. However, with any sleeping disorder, it is best to seek medical advice.
