Sleep apnea is a condition in which your breathing is interrupted while you’re sleeping. This can happen dozens or even hundreds of times per night and often leads to loud snoring. There are three main types of sleep apnea:
1. Obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when your throat muscles relax
2. Central sleep apnea, which occurs when your brain doesn’t send proper signals to the muscles that control your breathing
3. Mixed sleep apnea, which is a combination of the first two types
Sleep apnea can cause serious health problems if left untreated, including high blood pressure, stroke, heart failure, and irregular heartbeat. However, there are treatments available that can help ease symptoms so that you can finally get a good night’s sleep.

Fortunately, there are many treatments available for insomnia, ranging from making lifestyle changes to taking medication.
RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME (RLS)
Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is a disorder that causes an overwhelming urge to move your legs accompanied by uncomfortable sensations like crawling or creeping feeling. These sensations usually occur when you’re trying to relax or go to sleep and are often relieved by moving your legs around or walking. RLS affects upwards of 12 million adults in the United States and can make it difficult to get a good night’s rest. While there is no cure for RLS currently available, there are treatments that can help lessen symptoms and improve your quality of sleep.
