Tossing and turning at night, snoring, waking up feeling foggy and unrested… all of these are signs that you may have a sleep disorder.

The good news is that there are effective treatments available to help you start getting a good night’s rest again. At Snoring and CPAP Solutions in Willoughby Hills, Dr. Michael Stern is dedicated to helping patients do just that—which is why he offers free consultations on sleep disorders.
Common sleep disorders
The most common sleep disorder in the United States is insomnia, which is the inability to fall or stay asleep and can affect you either on acute or chronic basis. It can be caused by several lifestyle factors or medical conditions.
Sleep apnea is also incredibly common and occurs when your airway becomes blocked while you are sleeping—typically due to the soft tissues in your mouth collapsing into the back of your throat and closing off your airway. When this happens, you are temporarily unable to breathe and it causes negative symptoms, including:
- Temporarily waking up – sometimes up to hundreds of times per night
- Feeling like you are choking
Sleep apnea and insomnia can be linked in many patients because the recurring waking patterns of sleep apnea prevent you from being able to get a full night of deep, high-quality sleep.
Treatment for sleep disorders
Sleep disorders can seriously disrupt your quality of life and overall health and wellbeing, but you do not have to live with the condition forever. For many patients who are suffering from sleep apnea or insomnia, a comfortable, simple oral appliance that is custom designed for your mouth can be all that is needed to help you get the good night’s rest that you need.
At Snoring and CPAP Solutions in Willoughby Hills, Dr. Stern can consult with you about your symptoms to help you determine what may be causing them and what treatments might be right for you, such as certain lifestyle changes and oral appliance therapy.
