Most people know how important a good night's sleep is. But for some, getting a good night's sleep can be a real challenge. If you're struggling to get a good night's sleep, you may be wondering if you need a sleep study. There are a number of different factors that can contribute to sleep problems. If you're not sure what's causing your sleep problems, a sleep study can be a helpful tool in figuring out the cause.

Sleep studies can be used to diagnose a number of different sleep disorders, including insomnia, sleep apnea, and restless legs syndrome. Sleep studies can also be helpful in determining if a person's sleep problems are due to a medical condition. You should consider getting a sleep study if:


  • snoring, which disturbs your bed partner (or neighbors!)
  • always tired.
  • Falling asleep while driving
  • disturbed sleep
  • Going to the bathroom during the night
  • Waking up tired
  • waking up with a headache.
  • Waking up with a dry or sore throat
  • High blood pressure (or on medication)
  • Depressed (or on medication )
  • Sexual dysfunction (or on medication )
  • thick, short-neck (> 42 cm in men, > 38 cms in women)
  • BMI > 30 kg/cm although about 10% of people with sleep apnea are "skinny"—they just have narrow airways.
