Hypersomnia Treatment Chicago

Are you sleepy most of the time? Are you getting enough sleep and still feel like you can never catch up? Have you fallen asleep at the wheel or while talking to someone? Some folks are “always sleepy” and may be pre-disposed to being drowsy. This usually results in serious consequences at work, in social situations and even at home. As one just cannot stay awake or alert to get through the day. 

There are many other causes of feeling sleepy that include insufficient sleep syndrome, sleep apnea, and restless leg syndrome which should be excluded to better determine if you have primary hypersomnia syndrome.

If you are sleepy most of the time, the first step to getting better is to have a detailed evaluation of your sleep habits, your medical history, your medications and your overall health. If we suspect hypsersomnia, overnight and day time testing may be required to determine an accurate diagnosis which is key to the right hypersomnia treatment.
