Are you one of the 50 million Americans
whose quality of life suffers due to sleeping poorly?
- Do you wake up tired?
- Do you fall asleep—or have a hard time staying awake—during the day?
- Do you wake up with headaches?
- Does your spouse complain that you snore?
These are just some of the symptoms of a possible sleep disorder. If untreated, poor sleep can equate to decreased physical, emotional and mental health. Quality sleep provides more benefits than just rest and recovery. Sleep directly correlates to learning and memory as well as plays a vital role in the normal activity of the immune and endocrine systems.
Possible effects of sleep deprivation include:
- Memory Loss
- Heart Disease
- Attention Deficit Disorder
No one should have frequent problems getting a good night’s rest. Tell your primary care provider about your symptoms and ask if a sleep study might provide the answers you need. If you don’t have a primary care provider at Winona Health, call and ask to schedule an appointment.
