While we all feel tired from time to time, constant sleepiness, reliance on coffee and difficulty getting a full night of rest can cause serious health problems. Florida Hospital Altamonte’s Sleep Disorders Center helps patients determine what is causing symptoms and how to get better rest.
Research says that up to 20 percent of Americans suffer from lack of sleep, and doctors have identified almost 100 different sleep disorders including insomnia, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea and snoring. When the body doesn’t have enough time to recharge and restore energy, it can cause these serious health risks as well as many others:
- Heart disease
- Increased stress
- Emotional outbursts
- Reduced work performance
- Relationship issues
- Accidents while driving
- Anger issues
- Increased risk of illness
Florida Hospital Altamonte’s Center for Sleep Disorders begin by considering your symptoms, perhaps observing you while sleeping or using other diagnostic strategies. Once a diagnosis is made, our team of specialists, including neurologists, psychologists, pulmonary specialists and ENT doctors, works with you to develop a treatment plan that will help you get more sleep.
If you feel you may suffer from a sleep disorder, ask your physician for a referral to the Florida Hospital Altamonte Center for Sleep Disorders or contact us directly.
