We can help you get the good night's sleep you deserve. And this begins with a confidential consultation and evaluation by your family doctor or one of our board-certified sleep physicians, who can accurately diagnose your condition and explore treatment options with you.
It is particularly important to share your concerns with your doctor, because many insomniacs are actually – and often unknowingly - suffering from sleep apnea, a far more serious medical condition that causes people to actually stop breathing many times while sleeping.
However, if you're like many people, you may not be certain that the symptoms you're experiencing (or observing in others) are signs of insomnia.
If so, use the following "Insomnia Symptoms Checklist" - designed by medical professionals and sleep experts - to help you determine if you, or someone you know, may be suffering from insomnia and should consult a physician.

With Treatment for Your Insomnia, You Can Spend More Time Sleeping and Less Time Staring at Your Bedside Clock
Insomnia is a medical condition that negatively affects many aspects of sufferers' lives. Additionally, it can be linked to other more serious mental and emotional health issues such as depression, diabetes, and distraction, which mean they are far more likely to be injured in home, workplace, or motor vehicle accidents.
What is Insomnia?
Insomnia is a common medical disorder where people find it difficult to fall, or stay, asleep. People of all ages are susceptible to insomnia, although it is more common among older adults and women. Insomnia can occur for short periods of time – for instance a day or two - or the condition may be chronic and last for weeks, months, and even years.
A variety of physical and psychological factors as well as lifestyle choices can cause insomnia, including:
- Persistent stress
- Lack of exercise
- Sleep apnea
- Restless Leg Syndrome, or RLS (often confused with PLM, or Periodic Limb Movement)
- Caffeine or other stimulants
