Sleep Disorders Q&As
Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Are sleep disorders serious?
<p>Some sleep disorders can have little impact on your life, while others can be quite serious. Much depends on your specific sleep disorder and its severity. For example, short-term insomnia may potentially just make you irritable for a day, while chronic insomnia may cause you to fall asleep at the wheel, leading to a traffic accident. Likewise, untreated sleep apnea has the potential to cause serious problems such as high blood pressure, stroke, and heart failure.</p>
