Apparently the initial posting was deleted from this thread so I don’t know what that posting said about the problem with sleep. Certain medications, pre-bedtime activities, and even lifestyle behaviors can interfere with sleep. When someone has a problem getting to sleep, staying asleep, or feeling sleepy during the day, a sleep study can find out what happens during sleep. For instance, the person’s legs may move a lot (restless legs syndrome) or they may stop breathing temporarily during sleep (sleep apnea). Once the cause of the sleep problem is identified, it’s possible to design a treatment plan to reduce or eliminate the problem so the person gets a more restful night’s sleep.
