Trouble sleeping? Take a sleep disorder questionnaire
A sleep disorder risk assessment is a quick way to evaluate your sleep. It can reveal problems with your sleep patterns and practices. While risk assessments don’t diagnose sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, they help our team at Goshen Sleep Disorders Center identify who needs additional testing and provide the right care.
We understand that getting good sleep is essential to your quality of life. That’s why we offer a free sleep disorder questionnaire in Goshen, IN. Find an event online to register or call (877) 566-4660 for questions.
If your risk assessment results indicate you’re at risk of having a sleep disorder, your primary care provider may refer you to Goshen Sleep Disorders Center for treatment from a board certified sleep specialist.
Why you may need sleep help
Quality sleep is vital to both your physical and mental health. Unfortunately, sleep disorders are a common problem in the U.S. People are often unaware they have a sleep disorder, especially with sleep apnea. This can lead to unexplained daytime sleepiness, headaches and difficulty concentrating. Our assessments evaluate your risk or likelihood of having a sleep disorder. It’s the first step in diagnosing the underlying problem.
There may be a more serious cause of your sleep problem, such as anxiety, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes or chronic pain. Medications can also cause sleep disturbances.
