You may have a sleep disorder if you have trouble falling or staying asleep or experience abnormal breathing during sleep, unusual movement during sleep, or difficulty staying awake during the day. Not getting enough quality sleep can disrupt daily living and threaten your health. Because sleep disorders can have many causes, getting to the root of your issue quickly is crucial to determining the right treatment.
