A Manhattan Sleep Center Explains What You Should Do If You End Up Sleeping On the Sofa Too Often


Manhattan sleep centerStatistics tell us that at least 22% of Americans suffer from significant chronic sleep disorders. Similarly, statistics tell us that one in four couples (25%) in America now sleep apart. Is there a relationship between these two statistics? Well, based on our experience as Manhattan sleep specialists, we can certainly suggest that there is.

Many – if not most – of the patients who come to our Manhattan sleep center seeking help for sleep problems were sent there by their sleep partners. They, after all, are the ones being kept awake by loud snoring, by the constant thrashing around of a partner who suffers from restless leg syndrome (RLS), or simply by the tossing and turning or pacing around of a bed partner who suffers from insomnia. Faced with these constant disturbances, of course many of these people end up sending their partners off to sleep on the sofa or in another room – it’s the only way they can get any sleep.

Getting help for your sleep problems helps both you and your sleep partner

Nearly half of Americans experience occasional insomnia, and 22% have insomnia every night; imagine what that does to their partners’ sleep. Similarly, one symptom of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is loud snoring, which again disrupts your bed partner’s sleep. And if your partner knows that you have OSA, they probably also know that it’s greatly increasing your likelihood of developing heart failure, kidney disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, obesity, and clinical depression. If the snoring isn’t keeping them up at night, worrying about these significant risks to your life and health certainly is.

So don’t try to “live with” sleep problems – do something about them

The NYC sleep doctors at New York Sleep-Wake Center really can help you to overcome your sleep problems and get the quality rest you need. We can help you to develop healthier sleep habits that not only improve your health and your ability to stay awake and focused in your daily activities, we can help your sleep partners as well. Because when you are no longer thrashing around unable to sleep or no longer making more noise than a chainsaw with your snoring, their sleep quality improves as well. So give one of the best sleep centers in NYC a call today at 646-233-1838 or go online and arrange for a consultation. Do it for yourself, but also do it for your sleep partner. Both of you will be glad you did.
