Do You Have a Sleep Disorder?

Do You Have a Sleep Disorder?

St. Mary's Sleep Disorders Center Can Help
You Determine If You Have a Sleep Problem

Are you among the nearly 40 percent of women and 30 percent of men who suffer from a sleep disorder? The following questions may be helpful in deciding if you need to talk with your physician about your sleep problem(s):

  • Do you get enough sleep?
  • Do you feel well rested after a full night's sleep?
  • Does it generally take you more than a half-hour to fall asleep at bedtime?
  • Do you wake up often during the night and have difficulty going back to sleep?
  • Do you find yourself “nodding off” during the day?
  • Have you had accidents or near-accidents because you were drowsy?
  • Have you fallen asleep during meetings or at other times when you didn’t intend to do so?
  • Do you kick or jerk your arms or legs in your sleep throughout the night?
  • Do you snore loudly?
  • Do you have long pauses in your breathing during sleep?
  • Do you walk in your sleep?
  • Do you feel irritable or have trouble concentrating during the day?

If you said, “yes” to one or more of these questions, you may have a sleep disorder and should discuss with your physician if you need a referral to St. Mary's Sleep Disorders Center - (812) 485-7580.
