Sleep Disorders

The most common neurological complaints include headaches, dizziness, numbness/tingling, speech disturbances, visual changes, cognitive disorders, movement disorders, and problems with equilibrium. A proper and thorough evaluation is warranted to isolate the cause of the problem and to identify appropriate solutions.

Years ago, most neurological conditions had no effective therapies. But after the 1990s, known as the “decade of the brain,” there has been an explosion in therapeutic neurology.

Virginia Neurology and Sleep Centers focuses on therapeutic neurology. Our mission is to help patients improve overall well-being through minimizing disability from nervous system disorders.

  • Mouth Breathing

  • Headaches

  • Frequent Awakenings At Night

Other common symptoms include mouth-breathing during sleep, waking up congested or with a dry mouth, headaches, difficulty losing weight, sweating during sleep, coughing during sleep, dizziness upon getting out of bed, sexual dysfunction, frequent nocturnal awakenings, frequent nocturnal urination, memory problems, and other symptoms.

Additionally, people with the following conditions deserve serious consideration to be screened for sleep disorders by a qualified sleep physician, because identification and appropriate treatment are likely not only to improve quality of life, they may also increase lifespan and reduce medical disease and cost burden: high blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, diabetes, thyroid problems, ADD/ADHD, memory loss, and heartburn (acid reflux disease).

Other sleep disorders include restless legs syndrome, REM sleep behavior disorder, recurrent nightmares or night terrors, sleepwalking, bed-wetting, narcolepsy, and primary insomnia.

It is critical to remember that these are not symptoms -- rather, they are disorders requiring proper, thorough evaluation and treatment. When the disorder is successfully identified and treated, patients sleep well and enjoy an improved quality of life.
