Are you feeling tired even after a long night’s sleep? Do you receive complaints about loud snoring? If so, then you may be suffering from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when your breathing stops and starts repeatedly throughout your sleep. This breathing interruption usually lasts for at least ten seconds and can be problematic leading to complications such as daytime fatigue, drowsy driving, high blood pressure, heart problems, and type 2 diabetes. If you think you may be suffering from sleep apnea, our neurologist near Stony Brook, Dr. James Bruno can help you get the sleep you need and deserve.
Have you ever gotten the feeling that your body is trying to tell you something? Well, in truth, it is--all the time. The reason why you grab a blanket when your feet are cold, or often run in the opposite direction when faced with danger, is because your peripheral nervous system has sent a message back to your brain to respond to the given stimuli appropriately. The seamless communication between your peripheral nervous system and your central nervous system (your brain and spinal cord) is vital to your own self-preservation.
