288 Possible Causes for Sleep Disturbance or Sleep Apnea

  • Insomnia

    Medications Drugs or alcohol Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea.[news-medical.net] And obesity can contribute to sleep apnea and disturbed sleep. Clearly, more research is needed to uncover the skinny on sleep and body weight.[health.harvard.edu] Disturbed sleep environment, such as other people in the bedroom who make noise or the presence of too much light.[news-medical.net]

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

    CONCLUSIONS: High rates of PI and sleep apnea highlight the need to refer TMD patients complaining of sleep disturbance for polysomnographic evaluation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Conversely, the respiratory disturbance index was associated with increased mechanical pain thresholds on the forearm (P 0.05).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome

    Summary Epidemiology Incidence is estimated at 1:1,000,000 inhabitants per year, and the estimated prevalence is 15/100,000. LGS represents 5-10% of epileptic patients, and 1-2% of all childhood epilepsies. Clinical description This disorder is defined as a cryptogenic or symptomatic generalized epilepsy, which is[…][orpha.net]

  • Tonsillitis

    Enlargement of (Hypertrophic) Tonsils and Adenoids Obstruction to breathing by enlarged tonsils and adenoids may cause snoring and disturbed sleep patterns that may lead to[web.archive.org] Enlargement of (hypertrophic) tonsils and adenoids Obstruction to breathing by enlarged tonsils and adenoids may cause snoring and disturbed sleep patterns that may lead to[medicinenet.com] […] sleep pauses or sleep apnea.[web.archive.org]

  • Alcohol Abuse

    Alcohol consumption and sleep apnea in patients with TIA and ischemic stroke. Sleep Res 25:400, 1996. (17) Scher, M., et al.[pubs.niaaa.nih.gov] Aging, Alcohol, and Sleep Disturbance When people get older they naturally experience a decrease in slow wave sleep and increase in nighttime wakefulness.[verywell.com] A person may not recognize the extent of sleep disturbance that occurs under these circumstances, increasing the danger that sleepiness and alcohol consumption will co-occur[pubs.niaaa.nih.gov]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    Among the various complications of pediatric obstructive sleep apnea, growth disturbance is still controversial.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For people with sleep apnea, the combination of disturbed sleep and oxygen starvation may lead to hypertension, heart disease and mood and memory problems.[sleepfoundation.org] As the vast majority of sleep apnea patients are undiagnosed, it is not sufficient to simply ask if the patient has sleep apnea or disturbance.[apsf.org]

  • Sleep Apnea

    Respiratory disturbances causing sleep fragmentation and repetitive nocturnal hypoxia are responsible for a variety of nocturnal and daytime complaints of sleep apnea patients[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sleep disturbances are common in FMS and patients usually complain about nonrestorative sleep.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: The Sleep Apnea Syndrome consists of sleep-induced disturbances of breathing and breathing-induced disturbances of sleep.[clinicaltrials.gov]

[Medline].[emedicine.medscape.com] Allergic and nonallergic rhinitis: the threat for obstructive sleep apnea. Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol. 2009 Jul. 103 (1):20-5. [Medline].[emedicine.medscape.com] High prevalence of allergic sensitization in children with habitual snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Chest. 1997 Jan. 111(1):170-3. [Medline].[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Obesity

    Therapeutic implications of obesity Weight loss improves the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea 75 and reduces breathing disturbances during sleep. 76 Weight loss was demonstrated[doi.org] Prevalence of sleep apnea and electrocardiographic disturbances in morbidly obese patients. Obes Res 2000 ; 8 : 262 -9. 65. Peppard PE, Young T, Palta M, et al.[doi.org] However, a formal attended sleep study may be required when concomitant obstructive sleep apnea cannot be ruled out or when the obstructive or nonobstructive nature of nocturnal[doi.org]

  • Bruxism

    Polysomnographic is useful in the differential diagnosis of sleep bruxism, together with other disturbances: obstructive sleep apnea, periodic leg movements, REM sleep behaviour[doi.org] The following factors are associated with bruxism: Disturbed sleep patterns and other sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea , hypopnea, snoring, moderate daytime[diagnose-me.com] In children and adolescents, apart from distress, behavioral abnormalities and sleep disturbances predominated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
