Losing Sleep?

Take note women:

Sleep apnea research has been mostly focused on men. The commonly cited symptoms such as excessive snoring at night and daytime sleepiness may not hold true for women, who are more likely to complain about trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. That means, that these women are frequently misdiagnosed and their sleep complaints often blamed on anxiety or insomnia.

If you experience insomnia like symptoms, feel irritable during the day and have trouble concentrating, it's worth seeing your doctor to ask about a slep study.

You don't have to count sheep!!! Let the experts uncover what's keeping you awake at night.
