The McLaren Port Huron Center for Sleep Medicine is the only sleep center in the area with two independent physicians on staff who are diplomates of the American Board of Sleep Medicine. It is staffed by registered, certified polysomnographic technicians:

Sleep Apnea

Symptoms:

  • Snoring
  • Tossing and turning during sleep
  • Periods of non-breathing during sleep
  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Feeling suffocated during sleep
  • Feeling tired all the time
  • Morning headaches
  • Feeling irritated and unrested
  • Falling asleep at inappropriate times, such as while eating, driving, or talking
  • Problems on the job

Insomnia

Symptoms of insomnia can be different for each individual, and people with insomnia might experience a variety of symptoms:

  • Difficulty falling asleep, which can mean lying in bed for up to an hour or more, perhaps tossing and turning, wishing for sleep to begin
  • Awakening during sleep and having trouble getting back to sleep
  • Awakening too early in the morning
  • Feeling unrefreshed upon awakening
  • Daytime irritability, drowsiness, anxiety, and/or nonproductiveness

Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is a syndrome of excessive daytime sleepiness and is often signaled by unexpected "sleep attacks." These attacks can be very dangerous if they occur while the person is driving, operating equipment or performing other functions.

Symptoms:

  • Suddenly falling asleep at inappropriate times
  • Loss of muscle tone, often following strong emotions such as anger or laughter (cataplexy)
  • Sleep paralysis
  • Vivid dream states which seem real
  • Urge to sleep again within one to two hours after sleeping

Parasomnias

  • Sleepwalking
  • Sleep talking
  • Bedwetting
  • Sleep terrors
  • Nightmares

Most commonly affecting children, but also occurring in adults, parasomnias are often signs of a very serious underlying psychological or medical problem. As an example, sleep terrors which usually occur during the deepest stages of sleep can sometimes be caused by epilepsy, while persistent nightmares may be the result of a psychological disorder. For this reason, accurate diagnosis of parasomnias is very important to determine the proper form of treatment.
