Sleep Disorder Indicators
How do you know if you have a sleep disorder? There are several indicators. Do you snore? Do you fall asleep while driving, stopped at a red light or while watching television? Are you sleeping during the day? Do you have high blood pressure? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may have a sleep disorder. Use our Pre-Assessment/Screening Form and discuss the questionnaire with your doctor to determine if you may have a sleep-related breathing disorder.
