Frequently Asked Questions

Why am I tossing and turning so much?

It can be a variety of factors. You could have a sleep disorder like insomnia or sleep apnea, or you could have something as simple as the wrong kind of mattress. It is important to ask yourself questions about what is going on in your sleep pattern to figure out what is happening and then be able to proceed to a solution. 

What is Insomnia? 

According to the Mayo Clinic, "Insomnia is a common sleep disorder that can make it card to fall asleep, or cause you to wake up too early and not be able to get back to sleep. You may still feel tired when you wake up. Insomnia can sap you not only of your energy level and mood but also your health, work performance and quality of life." The causes of insomnia vary from case to case, so it is important to assess what might be causing you to lose sleep. 

Could getting a new mattress solve my sleep problems?

It depends on what your problem is. For some people, getting a new mattress can solve their sleep woes but others may have underlying health conditions that cause sleep issues. It is important to consult your doctor if you are having consistent sleep issues that are affecting your health. 

What is Sleep Apnea?

According to the Mayo Clinic, "Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night's sleep, you might have sleep apnea." There are several factors that may be underlying causes of sleep apnea, and it is important that you consult your doctor or physician if you are experiencing this. 

Do naps affect sleep?
