Sleep Apnea: Excessive daytime sleepiness is the primary symptom. Some people will deny sleepiness but feel fatigued. Other symptoms are snoring, snorting, and gasping sounds when you sleep; often first noticed by a sleeping partner. Restless or unrefreshing sleep is also typical, as are headaches in the morning.
Narcolepsy: Excessive sleepiness during the day, alleviated by naps, is a symptom of narcolepsy. Dreaming during naps and experiencing dream-like hallucinations as you fall asleep are also warning signs. Loss of muscle control (called cataplexy) that occurs with emotion, such as laughing or anger, and the inability to move as you're going to sleep or waking up (called sleep paralysis) are also symptoms.
Restless Leg Syndrome: The primary warning sign is the irresistible urge to move your legs shortly after you get into bed, in the middle of the night after awakening, or even when wide awake during the day. It usually feels better if you get up to walk around or rub your leg. "Creepy-crawly"
Call Your Doctor If:
1. Your sleep does not improve with self-help techniques, such as establishing good sleep hygiene, cutting down on caffeine, exercising, and using relaxation techniques.
2.You think your sleep problems may be related to an underlying condition, such as depression or heart failure.
3.You snore loudly or make snorting or gasping noises while you sleep -- or your partner observes these things while you're asleep.
4.You fall asleep doing normal activities, such as talking or driving.
5.You regularly feel unrefreshed on awakening and are constantly fatigued. Sleep disorders are among the many possible causes for fatigue.
6. You suspect your medication is causing your sleep problems.
