Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders can manifest in many forms, and may be caused by a variety of neurological and physiological issues. Whether you are having problems falling asleep, staying asleep, or not feeling rested after sleep, a clinical sleep study may help to determine the cause. Many sleep disorders can be diagnosed through a sleep study, and the results can be used to diagnose an underlying problem and develop a course of effective treatment.

When people do not get proper, restful sleep, it can affect many aspects of their lives. Sleep is linked to our mental and physical health, and can affect our memories, our emotions, and the activities we perform on a daily basis.

Emerald Coast Neurology sees patients with many sleep-related issues, such as:

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea (disturbed breathing during sleep)
  • Central Sleep Apnea
  • Insomnia (lack of sleep)
  • Narcolepsy (excessive sleep)
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • C-pap compliance
  • C-pap fitting or leakage

Dr. Ross and Dr. Bear are both board certified in Sleep Medicine, and interpret and read all sleep studies that are performed for our patients.
