Most sleep disorders can be successfully treated or controlled once properly diagnosed. Sleep disorders centers are staffed by physicians and other medical professionals with specialized training in sleep medicine. They will ask you detailed questions about your sleep problems and may monitor your sleep overnight before recommending a specific treatment. Contact the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) for more information on sleep, sleep disorders and links to organizations and sleep centers. You can also obtain a variety of publications online or by joining the NSF, including a free Sleep Diary.
