all about sleep disorders

having hard time to sleep at night? do you wake up feeling tired and exhausted? or feeling sleepy during the day even if you sleep enough? maybe you might have sleep disorders.

here are some informations about sleep disorders that you need to know.
  • Insomnia - experience difficulty falling asleep and wake up to early.
  • Nocturnal Enuresis - bed wetting
  • Hypersomnia - excessive sleep (day or night). It is also related to Psychologic problems, CNS damage and metabolic disorders.
  • Sleep Apnea - characterized by episodes of stopped breathing during sleep.
  • Bruxism - teeth grinding and clenching during sleep.
  • Restless leg syndrome (RLS) - characterized by an uncomfortable sensation, usually in the legs, that occurs primarily at night and when a person is relaxed.
  • Narcolepsy - "sleep attack." Can cause a person to suddenly fall asleep during the day.
  • Soliloquy - sleep talking.
  • Night terrors - common in children.
  • Nocturnal Erection - wet dreams.
  • Somnambolism - sleep walking.
always have a sleep diary to help you identify what sleep disorders you have and make you easier to discuss it if you decide to see a doctor. a sleep diary should record all sleep-related pattern, includes:
  1. time when you went to bed and wake up.
  2. how many hours and how well you sleep.
  3. any awakening during night and why?
  4. feelings and moods before sleeping.
  5. what before bed-activities you did?
  6. how you felt during the day? i.e. drowsiness, fatigue etc.
  7. any naps you took during the day?
  8. drugs, medications you took before going to bed.
  9. types and amount of food taken before going to bed.

Duroy said...

May pagkakaiba ba yung nakatulog ka ng mahimbing ng 8 hours sa umaga compared sa 8 hours na tulog sa gabi? Saka yung paputol putol na tulog, yung hindi buong 8 hrs ng sleep, counted ba yun as 8 hrs of sleep per day?

Alanganin talaga tulog ko hahaha

Enuresis Treatment Center said...

We read your blog posting, and would like to help. We work with the Enuresis Treatment Center. For 32 years, the Enuresis Treatment Center has successfully treated thousands of people from around the world who thought there was no hope for ending bedwetting. Bedwetting, or enuresis, is actually caused by deep sleep, not to be mistaken for healthy sleep. This deep sleep causes a disconnect between the brain and bladder, and the bedwetting occurs as a result. Very rarely does one outgrow bedwetting, and if they do, they are left with a sleep disorder that can manifest into other forms, such as sleep apnea, insomnia, etc.
The Enuresis Treatment Center has put together an informative guide to understanding and treating bedwetting. This free bedwetting guide is available to download at www.freebedwettingguide.com.
