If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may have a sleep disorder. Many sleep disorders are treatable. You must first see a physician certified in sleep medicine in order to evaluate the sleep problems. You should seek consultation if:
• You snore and are overweight
• You answer "yes" to any of the following questions:
1.Are you sleepy in the "daytime" in spite of eight hours in bed every night?
2.Do you snore loudly?
3.Does someone advise you that you actually stop breathing when you sleep?
4.Do you have violent behaviors during your sleep?
5.Are you always very sleepy and have muscle weakness when you get emotional (laugh, cry)?
6.Are you kept awake by restless legs or arms (a creeping, crawling sensation on the legs)?
