NYC Sleep Doctors: Give the Gift of Better Sleep
Posted: Jan 20, 2016
The end-of-year holidays are upon us, and as a result many of us have a LOT on our agendas as we try to juggle work and home life with running around trying to find the perfect presents for the ones we love. It's not unusual to feel a little tired at the end of a long, busy holiday shopping day.
What is NOT usual is getting to the end of that day and being unable to fall asleep. It's NOT usual to find yourself waking up in the middle of the night and being unable to get back to sleep again. It's also NOT usual if, when you finally do fall asleep, you find your legs constantly twitching and waking both you and your sleep partner up. And it's very much NOT usual if all of these things build up and leave you feeling so tired during the day that you can barely stay awake, or actually fall asleep without intending to.
All of these things are sleep disorders, and so possibly the best gift you can give to yourself is to see a NYC sleep specialist and get rid of them so you can get the rest you need.
Poor sleep can negatively affect not only your life but your partner's as well
The "twitching" we mentioned earlier – officially called RLS or restless leg syndrome – doesn't just wreck your sleep and keep you from getting the rest you need. It also affects your sleep partner. So does loud snoring, and snoring can be a symptom of an even more serious sleep disorder, obstructive sleep apnea. OSA isn't just an annoying or inconvenient sleep disorder – it's potentially a very dangerous one, because sleep apnea has been linked to increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and other diseases.
All of the sleep problems and disorders we've mentioned are treatable
You DON'T have to live with them. And neither does your sleep partner. At NYCVA's Manhattan sleep center, we're used to working with patients to analyze and eliminate the obstacles that keep them from getting the quality sleep they need. So why not give our NYC sleep doctors a call and arrange for a consultation? We'll ask you a number of questions about your sleep habits and if necessary schedule a sleep study to identify the problems that are interfering with you getting the sleep you need, and then work with you to eliminate those problems. Get better sleep tonight – and for the rest of your life – by calling us at 646-233-1838 today.
