How’s your sleep? Do you snore, gasp for breath, wake up throughout the night or fall asleep during the day? These are actually signs of a sleep disorder.

Cape Fear Valley Sleep Center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) and The Joint Commission. It is directed by Amita Shetty, M.D. who has been board-certified in sleep medicine since 2007.

The Sleep Center staff treats a variety of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy (daytime sleepiness), periodic limb movement disorder and restless legs syndrome.

Sleep disorders are serious. Left untreated, they may result in a serious medical condition, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke.

Signs of A Sleep Disorder

  • Snoring loudly
  • Gasping for breath or stopping breathing during sleep
  • Feeling sleepy or dozing off during daily activities
  • Waking frequently during the night
  • Having trouble falling asleep
  • Feeling unpleasant tingling in your legs while trying to sleep
