Common Sleep Disorders
The MetroHealth Center for Sleep Medicine helps adults and children get the rest they need. Our specially trained physicians and technicians use state-of-the-art methods and technology to diagnose and treat sleep disorders such as:
- Sleep Apnea: A common disorder that can be very serious. In sleep apnea, your breathing stops or gets very shallow while you are sleeping.
- Narcolepsy: A sleep disorder that causes a person to have difficulty staying awake.
- Restless Legs Syndrome: A disorder in which a person experiences unusual sensations in the legs.
- Insomnia: A disorder related to having difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, waking up too early, or experiencing poor quality of sleep.
- Parasomnias: A disorder involving involuntary, abnormal behaviors that occur during sleep, such as sleepwalking or bed-wetting.
- Shift Workers: Shift workers, such as doctors, nurses, police officers, and others, have unusual work schedules that may affect their ability to sleep well.
In most cases, a simple treatment — often without medication — can relieve the troubling symptoms associated with these disorders. If lack of sleep or poor quality of sleep is causing you to suffer, call 216-778-3441 to schedule an appointment today. Chances are you'll rest a whole lot easier.
