A sleep study is a test that measures how well you sleep and checks for problems occurring throughout the night. During your overnight evaluation, adequate monitoring will assess movement, brain activity, breathing, and other body functions while you sleep.
Your doctor may recommend a Polysomnography if he/she suspects a condition that makes you stop breathing for short periods while you are asleep, called “sleep apnea.” Symptoms that may warrant a sleep study include:
1) Feel very sleepy/fatigue during the day and fall asleep
2) Excessive Snoring
3) Have an uncomfortable feeling in your legs when you try to fall asleep 0r sudden jerking leg movements while you sleep
4) Doing odd things while you sleep, such as moving your arms and legs, shouting, or walking.
