Today, sleep disorders are increasingly recognized as having serious health consequences. Yet, there is also an increase in the number of sleep-disorder cases that general physicians — well-meaning and devoted to their patients — attempt to evaluate and treat on their own.
The fact is, there are good reasons why sleep medicine is classified as a distinct specialty and why your sleep difficulties should be managed by a physician specializing in sleep medicine. With more than 84 different sleep disorders, reaching an accurate diagnosis can be challenging without a sleep physician’s additional training and expertise. In addition, symptoms can overlap, as can underlying causes and contributing factors. Without the informed care of a specialist, treatment can be inappropriate, ineffective or even nonexistent. As an example, people who seek medical care for sleep apnea usually go without treatment for an average of seven years!
