What's Keeping You Awake? Exploring Common Sleep Disorders

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA)

This sneaky culprit is quite common. It happens when the muscles in your throat relax a bit too much during sleep, causing a temporary pause in breathing. If you're waking up feeling like you’ve run a marathon instead of snoozed through the night, OSA might be to blame.


Then there's insomnia, the infamous sleep stealer! If you find yourself staring at the ceiling, counting sheep, or binge-watching TV series because sleep just won’t come, you might be dealing with insomnia. It can pop up for a few nights or stick around long-term, impacting everything from your mood to your energy levels.


Do you feel like a zombie during the day or find yourself nodding off in the middle of meetings? Maybe you wake up more tired than when you went to bed? These are telltale signs that your sleep might be disturbed.

From genes to jeans (yes, tight clothing can impact your sleep!), several factors can mess with your rest. Stress, your environment, health issues, and lifestyle choices play big roles. Knowing what triggers your sleep issues is the first step towards fixing them.

Don’t worry, there’s plenty we can do to get your sleep back on track. From tweaking your bedtime routine to exploring medical treatments, we’ve got your back. Effective treatment not only makes you feel better but also improves your overall health.
