What are sleep disorders?

Sleep disorders are a group of conditions that affect the ability to sleep well on a regular basis. Whether it’s insomnia, sleep apnoea, restless legs syndrome, or narcolepsy, these disorders can significantly impact anyone’s life. While the most obvious symptom of sleep disorders is difficulty sleeping, other signs can include excessive daytime sleepiness, irregular breathing or increased movement during sleep, difficulty staying awake during the day, and irregular sleep and wake cycles. These symptoms often lead to further issues like concentration difficulties, mood changes, and decreased performance at work or school. Recognising these symptoms is the first step towards seeking help and improving your sleep and wellbeing.

At HelloGP, we’re committed to helping you achieve a good night’s sleep and, as a result, a healthier, more energetic life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Signs include difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, excessive daytime sleepiness, loud snoring, and restless legs.

If these symptoms persist, it’s essential to consult a HelloGP doctor to discuss your options.

If your sleep issues are affecting your daily life, mood, or cognitive functions, or if you suspect a sleep disorder, it’s wise to seek professional assistance. Early diagnosis and treatment can lead to better sleep quality.

Treatments range from lifestyle changes (e.g., improving sleep hygiene) to therapies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) and medical interventions. Your healthcare provider can recommend the most suitable approach based on your specific condition.

To enhance sleep quality, establish a consistent sleep schedule, create a relaxing bedtime routine, limit screen time before bed, avoid caffeine and heavy meals close to bedtime, and ensure your sleep environment is comfortable and dark. If these strategies don’t help, consult a healthcare professional for further guidance.
