GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Sometimes getting a full, good night's sleep is difficult for all of us, but for many people the issue is much more serious. An estimated 40 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder. Doctor Lee Marmion is a Sleep Medicine doctor with the Spectrum Health Medical Group . They provide diagnosis and treatment for all types of sleep-related conditions, treating both adult and pediatric patients. Some of the more common sleep conditions include insomnia, restless leg syndrome sleep apnea and narcolepsy. Insomnia can be a short-term or chronic condition, but it always involves problems with falling or staying asleep. Short-term (transient) insomnia can be caused by illness, stress, travel, or environmental factors. Long-term (chronic) insomnia may be due to underlying psychological or physical conditions. Anyone can get insomnia, but it is generally more common in women than in men. The elderly are particularly at risk for insomnia. Learn more about sleep-related conditions like insomnia at the Sleep Soundly Insomnia Fair next Wednesday at the Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville. It's free and open to everyone.
