Did you know that 40 million people in the U.S. have a chronic sleep disorder? Sleep disorders includes complications with sleeping, snoring, insomnia, sleep apnea, sleep deprivation and restless leg syndrome. When you do not get good sleep, it can cause serious health effects including fatigue, weight gain, headaches, daytime sleepiness and more.
