Dr. R Bart Sangal Treats Daytime Sleepiness and Narcolepsy at Michigan’s Sleep & Attention Disorders Institute
The only thing worse than tossing and turning all night is being sleepy and walking around tired the next day. If you or someone you love is experiencing daytime sleepiness or fatigue, you may be suffering from hypersomnia. People with hypersomnia always feel like they have no energy. Work is affected. Relationships are affected. And, it can be very dangerous if someone with daytime sleepiness drives or operates machinery.
Come to the Sleep and Attention Disorders Institute in Sterling Heights, Mich. Sleep expert Dr. R Bart Sangal treats patients with hypersomnia and narcolepsy. For more than 30 years, he has been diagnosing sleep and attention disorders in the Greater Detroit metro area. Rest assured, he will diagnose your sleep disorder and find the right treatment for you.
What are Narcolepsy and Idiopathic Hypersomnia?
Narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia cause daytime sleepiness. They usually begin in childhood or early adulthood. Simply put, hypersomnia or daytime sleepiness is dozing off when you should not. People with this condition find it difficult to stay awake when they should.
This condition is more dangerous than simply feeling tired. It can be life-threatening. Falling asleep on the job or while driving, for example, can have a fatal result.
There are two different types of narcolepsy. Patients with one type have cataplexy. They lose muscle strength when emotional, such as laughing. They have a loss of orexin cells in the brain. Patients with the other type do not have cataplexy. All narcolepsy patients may (or may not) have sleep paralysis (waking up from sleep feeling paralyzed). They may also have hypnagogic hallucinations (dreaming while half awake). Idiopathic hypersomnia patients do not have these other symptoms.
