Experiencing many restless nights and waking up constantly feeling dazed and tired could indicate an undiagnosed sleep problem. Among the most common is obstructive sleep apnea, a chronic disorder that interrupts your night of peace by blocking the airways and causing you to stop breathing for several seconds.
If left untreated, sleep disorders can affect your health in other harmful ways, such as increasing your risk of heart disease or complicating your ability to control your diabetes.
Dr. Victoria Sharma, medical director of the Sleep Disorders Center at Sharp Grossmont Hospital, explains how a sleep study can diagnose and help treat sleep disorders. She also provides tips to improve your rest and relaxation.
If a sleep disorder is disturbing your life, talk with your doctor about your symptoms and their effect on your quality of life.
