According to the National Sleep Foundation, approximately 70 million people in the United States are affected by a sleep problem. Disruptions in sleep can be caused by a variety of issues, from teeth grinding (bruxism) to night terrors. When a person suffers from difficulty in sleeping with no obvious cause, it is referred to as insomnia. In addition, sleep disorders may also cause sufferers to4 sleep excessively, a condition known as hypersomnia. Individuals experiencing difficulties falling asleep at night, staying asleep or even staying awake during the daytime should consider enlisting the help of our Center for Sleep Medicine at Hudson Regional Hospital.
