Sleep Disorders Center
Are you having difficulty sleeping through the night? Do you wake in the morning feeling groggy; you’re your energy waning throughout the day? You may be suffering from an undiagnosed sleep disorder. Let professionals at the Sleep Center at Forrest City Medical Center help you determine what is interrupting your rest and the steps you can take to improve it.
There are more than 80 types of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, insomnia and restless legs syndrome. We understand that these conditions can significantly affect healthy sleep–and this, in turn, impacts your overall health, safety and quality of life.
The Sleep Center at Forrest City Medical Center performs sleep studies for adults. Sleep Studies at the Sleep Center take place in comfortable, home-like rooms.
Forrest City Medical Center Sleep Lab is open, and located on the first floor. The Sleep Lab provides a local treatment option for residents who suffer from a variety of sleep issues. The sleep study tests are non-invasive. And, patients are referred by their primary care physician for a sleep study.
Sleep disorders are a highly common medical issue that affects millions of Americans each year. While some people suffer from mild sleeping problems, such as the occasional nightmare, others have extremely severe sleep disorders that can negatively affect their health if left untreated. In fact, 95 percent of people suffering from a sleep disorder remain undiagnosed. This staggering number means there are thousands of people not getting the treatment they need, putting them in danger of permanently damaging their health. Insufficient sleep is increasingly linked to chronic disease such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and depression, and treating your sleep disorder can lower your risks or improve your symptoms of chronic illness.
