Read this book so you can recognize the symptoms. The medical system will eventually catch up but it will be decades before we get there.
This is a very accessible but not condescending book about the effects of sleep disorders and the spectrum of their severity. It is a quick read, so you can get through it quickly and start to address your sleep issues right away. There is a good list of the symptoms and health problems caused by sleep disorders that are often associated with other health problems and therefore sleep may be overlooked. It is a broad range, and the author does a good job of explaining how sleep disorders can lead to these other health problems, not just saying that there is a connection but going into the mechanisms.
For more in depth coverage of sleep and sleep disorders I highly recommend Dr. Dement's "the Promise of Sleep," but that is a much longer and denser read (though very informative and interesting). There is clearly not enough knowledge of sleep disorders in the public and even among most physicians, I have learned from these books an my own experience. I never knew how much sleep disruption can be linked to so many health problems- not just fatigue, but high blood pressure, heart attacks, and so much more, yet poor sleep is often overlooked as the cause. If you or someone you know is always tired, or halts breathing in the night- get this book! It will convince you/them to do something about their sleep and improve their health.
