Sleep Disorders: A Prelude

Sleep disorders cause a person to have disturbed, unrestful, or unusual sleep patterns; or they cause behaviors during sleep that normally happen when someone is awake. Sleep disorders have a domino effect on other areas of life, because lack of sleep and rest easily cause other problems at work or in relationships and even health.

1. Whom should we consult if we have problems related to sleep?

You can consult a general physician or if possible a sleep specialist is more desirable if available in your area.

2. In layman’s terms how do we know if we are suffering from a sleep disorder?

If you have excessive daytime sleepiness, like for example, if you fall asleep while reading a book or while watching television or during a lecture on a regular basis then you are likely to be suffering from a sleep disorder.

3. What is likely to happen if we do not get adequate sleep?

Your may not be able to work up to your full potential due to your mental and physical ability becoming slow and blunted due to sleep deprivation. The increased numbers of road accidents are probably attributed to lack of adequate sleep.

4. Can the therapies mentioned help achieve good sleep?

Yes, depending on the type of disorder, therapy is initiated. This is supported by behavioral therapy to make good sleep a regular habit rather than an occasional occurrence.

5. I can go to sleep easily but I wake up very early in the morning and am not able to go back to sleep again. What is my problem?

Persistently awakening very early in the morning and not being able to go back to sleep could be an early sign of depression.
