Match the symptom to the disorder.

If you have any of these signs, symptoms or medical conditions, you may be able to identify their cause with the help of our sleep disorder Screening Test.  If the disorder is due to a physical cause, talk to your doctor.  In the meantime, keep in mind that the patterns and habits that you have been learning and using to help compensate for the disorder, might have created a disconnect to your memories of how to sleep well.  To refresh and/or learn how to "sleep like a baby" again read The Guide to Better Sleep Naturally.
