Sleep disorder

Each disorder is discussed in details, including the causes and consequences for your health. We offer solutions for each of them.

Night terrors

The term “terror” accurately defines what those who remember night terror episodes describe. Night terrors are characterized by physical symptoms associated with fear such as accelerated heartbeat and sweating. This makes them look more like panic attacks than nightmares, but they’re not.

Chronic insomnia

Do you struggle with your sleep night after night? Are your days difficult as a result of poor sleep? Does it take you forever to fall asleep? Do you wake up several times a night or very early in the morning and can’t get back to sleep? Do you have low energy and feel fatigue as you go about your daily activities? Is sleeping problematic for you?

Sleep apnea

We all know how important breathing freely is. We’ve all voluntarily held our breath or involuntarily lost it (i.e.: apnea). Some will remember, for example, the longest breath competitions in the pool in the summer or have lost their breath after a fall, such as slipping on a patch of ice in winter. Well, sleep apnea disorder is just as breathtaking.

REM Sleep Behaviour Disorder (RBD)

We all know that dreaming is a mental activity that does not translate into behaviours. But what happens when it’s not the case?

Periodic Leg/Limb Movement Disorder (PLM) and Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS).

When PLMD and RLS kick in together, how do you keep them still?

Sleep walking

Sleepwalking is often seen as the “funny” or even “cute” child sleep disorder. Nightwalkers are most of the time calm, with an expressionless face and simply performing acts while being asleep which appears strange to the awaken ones. Most sleepwalkers would like to be able to fully remember what happen the night before, but they rarely remember episodes or only portions of it.

Narcolepsy

Since “narco-“ means ‘put to sleep’ and “-lepsy” means seizure or attack, the etymology of this sleep disorder says it all. A hallmark symptom of narcolepsy is daytime sleep attacks, meaning the irrepressible need to fall asleep in any situation.

Idiopathic hypersomnia

Feeling sleepy all the time, having trouble waking up every morning, feeling as if part of you is still asleep for the first hours of awakening, and having trouble concentrating are all signs that something may be wrong. Stop blaming yourself … the struggle is real.
