While almost everyone deals with occasional sleeping problems, more frequent issues with sleeping are a strong indication of a sleeping disorder. If you experience one or more of these symptoms, discuss your sleeping problems or concerns with your healthcare provider:

  • Excessive sleepiness or fatigue during the day.

  • Difficulty sleeping, including trouble falling asleep, waking frequently during the night, waking too early not being able to fall back asleep, or waking unrefreshed.

  • Loud or frequent snoring.

  • Pauses in breathing or gasping for breath during sleep, as reported by others.

  • Difficulty concentrating or memory problems.

  • Irritability or depression.

  • Morning headaches.

  • Nighttime leg discomfort or movement of your arms or legs while sleeping.

  • Weakness or loss of muscle strength, often in response to a strong emotion.

  • Sleepwalking or sleep talking (parasomnias).

  • Hypertension, or high blood pressure.
