Common Sleep Disorders & Tips

Common Sleep Disorders

Listed below are some common sleep disorders that can be diagnosed and treated at the Sleep Disorders Center at Alliance Community Hospital:

  • Chronic Insomnia – The inability to fall asleep or remain asleep.
  • Sleep Apnea – A condition in which breathing stops many times during the night. Sleep apnea is often characterized by loud snoring and daytime sleepiness.
  • Narcolepsy – A disorder which causes a person to fall asleep suddenly many times a day, often at inappropriate times.
  • Restless Leg Syndrome – A disorder that causes people to have a ‘crawling’ sensation in their legs when they lie down to sleep.
  • Snoring – Frequent or loud snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea.
  • Periodic Limb Movement Disorder – A disorder that causes your arms or legs to jerk repeatedly during sleep; as a result you feel tired upon waking. Most people are not aware of the repetitive movements.
  • Work-Shift Change Syndrome – Shift workers and others who have irregular sleep patterns can suffer from tiredness and insomnia.
  • Sleepwalking – A sequence of behaviors that can cause a person to get out of bed and walk without full consciousness.

If your physician recommends that you have a sleep study, ask to have your study performed at the Sleep Disorders Center at Alliance Community Hospital. You deserve the very best Comfort, Safety and Service!

Tips For a Better Night’s Sleep

Certain measures can be taken to get a good night’s sleep. Follow these suggestions to feel more rested:

  • Exercise daily, but at least three hours before going to bed.
  • Decide on a pre-set bedtime and rise time, and stick to them.
  • If you do happen to lose sleep, try going to bed an hour or two earlier than usual the next night.
  • Try not to nap during the day.
  • Keep your bedroom at a comfortable sleeping temperature (60-65 degrees).
  • Make sure your mattress is in good condition.
  • Warm baths can promote relaxation.
  • Try avoiding caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco, especially in the evening.
  • When hungry, eat a light snack.
  • When you turn off the lights, try to relax and avoid worrisome thinking.
  • If you cannot sleep after 30 minutes, get up, but try to stay relaxed. Go back to bed twenty minutes later.

Shape up your Sinuses

Dr. David Kanagy, an otolaryngologist with the Alliance Community Medical Foundation, is offering sinus sufferers some relief using an in-office balloon sinuplasty procedure. In the last year, Kanagy became one of the only doctors in a six-county area to begin doing the procedure in the office under local anesthesia, which means no sedation, no IV, no gowns, and no visit to the hospital's surgical department.
