Sleep-Wake Disorders: What to Look For

Difficulty falling asleep, fitful, interrupted sleep, teeth-grinding during sleep, bedwetting, recurrent nightmares and difficulty breathing while asleep can all be signs of sleep-wake disorders. Oversleeping can be a sign of these disorders as well. Daytime signs of sleep-wake disorders include fatigue, dozing off while in the middle of a task, trouble focusing (especially during cognitive tasks while at school), irritability, and mood swings.
