Do you have a sleep problem?

Sleep disorders and insomnia are very common. In fact, one out of every four Americans has trouble sleeping, either mild or serious symptoms.

Mild sleep problems

About 35 million Americans (12%) have intermittent sleep problems, such as mild or occasional insomnia. Here in Orlando and Central Florida, there are about 225,000 people with these problems.

Occasional sleeplessness can be reduced by changing your sleep habits. We've put together some tips on how to help you with mild sleep problems.
Symptoms of insomnia
Insomnia is a common sleep problem often alleviated by lifestyle change, and change in sleep habits. The main symptoms of insomnia are:
  • Difficulty in falling asleep
  • Difficulty in staying asleep
  • Daytime sleepiness

Serious sleep disorders

Another 44 million Americans (15%) have more serious chronic sleep disorders. There are about 280,000 people in the Orlando and Central Florida area who are affected.

These disorders affect quality of life and can have even more serious consequences. Such disorders may require evaluation and possible medical treatment from qualified sleep specialists.
