You or your bed partner may be a snorer or gasper or perhaps you do not feel that you get refreshing sleep. Your bed partner may be stressed watching your every breath while you stop breathing at night. Many people with sleep related disorders are inefficient during the day, falling asleep easily or constantly feeling tired. Many of our patients are depressed and moody and have trouble with weight gain. Not to mention the overall health problems sleep apnea can cause, such as risk of developing diabetes, osteoporosis, etc..
Unfortunately, for many who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea you are given only one choice…A CPAP machine.
Be assured that during your visit, you will receive an in-depth analysis of not only the causes of your sleep apnea but the consequences of not treating it.
Being double-board certified in sleep medicine, Dr. Pasha also specializes in a number of other sleep related disorders including insomnia, hypersomnia (narcolepsy), sleep related movement disorders (restless leg syndrome), as well as parasomnias (sleep terrors and nightmares). Numerous times, patients are not diagnosed with other sleep conditions and are just given a CPAP without any improvement in their health. It is essential to be able to distinguish other causes of sleep disturbances to properly treat you.
