Inside these laboratories, specialists treat a host of disorders, including insomnia, sleepwalking, narcolepsy and restless leg syndrome.

Ted Mueller, of Rochester, spent a night under observation last year. A snorer who complained of always feeling tired, he was referred by his doctor, who suspected that he might have sleep apnea, a serious disorder that interrupts a person’s breathing while sleeping.

Signs You Could Have a Sleep Disorder You snore The problem: Your partner says you snore or stop breathing in bed.
