Allergy Sleep & Lung Care provides healthy sleeping habits to prevent disturbed sleep during Halloween
FORT MYERS, Fla. – Oct. 23, 2014 – Nightmares are common during the Halloween season, and Allergy Sleep & Lung Care is providing the right tools to ensure people are getting a healthy amount of sleep each night.
While nightmares can be a distraction to quality sleep, disturbed sleeping and insomnia can also play a factor. An estimated 50-70 million adults in the U.S. suffer from some type of sleep disorder, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Sleep is essential for good health, both physical and mental.
“There are simple techniques that can help prevent poor sleep patterns,” says Board Certified Sleep Medicine physician Imtiaz Ahmad, M.D., F.C.C.P. “In many cases, poor sleep conditions can be solved with changes in diets, medications or by learning stress reduction techniques.”
For those who suffer from disturbed sleep or insomnia, Allergy Sleep & Lung Care in Fort Myers can diagnose these sleep disorders, beginning with a consultation through their oxygen clinic.
“There a few, non-refreshing sleep disorders that may have a severe effect on your quality of life and health, and may require more intensive treatment,” says Dr. Ahmad. “Such disturbances may be manifested by excessive snoring called sleep apnea. Those who suffer from sleep apnea often experience daytime drowsiness, poor performance, poor concentration and depression.”
Another culprit of non-refreshing sleep is a disorder called restless leg syndrome.
“People who experience this come to my office explaining unpleasant sensations in their legs. Other complaints may include involuntary movements of your limbs,” says Dr. Ahmad. “These movements happen while you are asleep and most are unaware of this unless reported by a sleeping mate or evidence of a restless night when your blankets and sheets are disheveled. Good sleep is essential to everyday life and we’re here to help.”
Sleep services offered at Allergy Sleep & Lung Care include Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), a sleep apnea treatment that uses mild air pressure to keep the airways open, and the Oxygen Clinic, providing comprehensive diagnostic testing of lung function, sleep patterns and treatment options.
Dr. Ahmad is the founder of Allergy Sleep & Lung Care. He has post-graduate training at Harvard University, Cornell University, State University of New York at Brooklyn and University of Mississippi.
