Take this quiz now:
When you get up in the morning, do you feel rested?
Do you nap inappropriately during the day, e.g., at work or at school? Do you nap whenever you pick up a book or whenever you watch TV or go to the movies, a theatre, or a concert? Do you find yourself nodding off at meetings or while traveling by bus or train? Do you feel sleep deprived, for whatever reason?
Do you ever feel that you could fall asleep behind the wheel? Have you ever done so?
Do you become frustrated or anxious when it’s time to go to bed? Or when you can’t fall asleep? Do you feel unusually shaky at bedtime, because your body suddenly remembers the horror of your last breath loss or panic attack?
Do you have an irregular heartbeat that prevents sleep or that is noticeable during the night or upon awakening?
Has someone ever told you that you snore loudly–or that you have stopped breathing in your sleep? Do you ever recall waking up from not being able to breathe? Has anyone told you that you’ve been kicking or vigorously tossing and turning, and you can’t remember any of it? Or maybe you do remember…..
Do you feel odd when you wake up in the morning, as if it were time to go to sleep (or get more sleep)–but you’ve actually been in bed for at least eight hours?
