Quality sleep gives us energy we need during the day to function well. Refreshing sleep increases job performance, improves mood and overall well-being. Lack of sleep increases accidental injuries and stress. Stress evokes negative emotions such as anxiety and depression. Insomnia and narcolepsy are two very different sleep disorders that have a profound negative effect on one's health. If you are experiencing these signs and symptoms, discuss this issue with your doctor.

Insomnia is associated with difficulty falling asleep and or maintaining sleep. This condition is common and occurs in about one third of the adult population. Insomnia can be a difficult sleep disorder to diagnose. Often a patient may have other medical, psychiatric, and/or sleep disorders, resulting in the inability of a patient to sleep properly.
