What is sleeping disorder
  • A sleep disorder, or somnipathy, is a medical
    disorder of the sleep patterns of a person or
    animal.
  • Some sleep disorders are serious enough to
    interfere with normal physical, mental, social
    and emotional functioning.
  • Polysomnography and actigraphy are tests commonly
    ordered for some sleep disorders.
  • Disruptions in sleep can be caused by a variety
    of issues, from teeth grinding (bruxism) to night
    terrors.
  • When a person suffers from difficulty falling
    asleep and/or staying asleep with no obvious
    cause, it is referred to as insomnia.
