Maybe you have trouble falling asleep or, perhaps, you fall asleep right away but wake up in a couple of hours and can’t get to sleep again. More than 50 million American adults report problems falling asleep or getting a full night’s sleep on a regular basis. There are certainly plenty of reasons for getting fewer than the recommended eight hours sleep a night. Our busy, stressful lives certainly contribute to insomnia as do our less than ideal diets. Pain, or having to visit the bathroom overnight also cut into sleep time.
With all this sleeplessness going around, you might assume that people not getting a good night’s sleep on a regular basis would be lining up outside their doctor’s offices asking for a solution. However, only one in four people with sleep issues consults a healthcare provider about the problem. If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, there may be a medical reason. A full checkup could reveal a medical condition that can be successfully treated. Many new treatments, medications, and lifestyle adjustments are available and proven to work for many people.
Our healthcare providers will listen carefully to your sleep-related issues and help you get the rest you need. See our convenient locations at: www.hackensackumgpv.org/locations/
