If you aren’t getting quality sleep find out whether a sleep disorder could be a cause
Sleep is such an important part of our daily lives and yet it seems that so many people aren’t getting the quality sleep they need to be fully functional in the morning. From falling asleep behind the wheel to having difficulty performing day-to-day tasks, there are many ways that bad sleep can affect you. Of course, some situations may warrant a visit to see one of our Portland and Astoria, OR, sleep doctors—Dr. Jennifer G. Kim Dr. Radhika Breaden or Dr. Gregory Clark.
You Always Feel Tired
You could have slept for eight hours or more but you still wake up feeling exhausted and unable to get out of bed. This isn’t normal. Someone who is getting the proper amount of sleep should wake up feeling refreshed. If you aren’t, then there is something that is keeping your body from entering the deep sleep you need.
You’re a Snoring Machine
Even if you don’t wake yourself up at night from your snoring episodes you may be a less-than-pleasant bedmate for your partner or other members of your family. If someone says that you snore loudly or that you stop breathing while you are asleep this could be a sign of sleep apnea, a serious sleep disorder that our Portland and Astoria sleep specialists need to evaluate.
You Can’t Stop Snoozing
Do you find yourself feeling extremely tired throughout the day? Do you find yourself nodding off at work or—worse yet—behind the wheel? If you are getting a full night’s rest and still find yourself feeling tired throughout the day this is a sign that something is amiss.
You Just Can’t Fall Asleep
Do you have trouble falling asleep? Do you toss and turn in bed? Do you lie awake for hours on end before finally drifting off? If this problem has been happening for at least a month this could be a telltale sign of insomnia. Let us help you finally get your sleep schedule back on track.
