Many patients with the sleep problems, daytime sleepiness, fatigue have associated sleep apnea or some may have its mild version of sleep apnea or called upper airway resistance syndrome or called UARS. The difference in this is more technical defination of the respiratory event and how it is scored on the diagnostic polysomnography or sleep study, either way patient suffering from this are tirred and sleepy. In the UARS there are all exclusive hypopneas and there are no apnea present. In sleep apnea it many be the combination of the apnea and the hyponeas. Apnea stands for the complete stoping of respiration for atleast 10 seconds or longer and assocated arousal. Where as in the hyponeas it is partial stop breathing and not complete with associated arousal and some change in the oxygen saturation.

GI work up may be needed if symptoms persists. If sleep apnea or UARS is present the symptoms may improve with the sleep apnea treatment by improvement of the sleep and feels more rested in the morning when they wake up.

Many patient suffering from sleep problems also have irregular sleep wake cycle like doing to bed at different time and waking up at different time most of the days in the week and with that the gastric acid secretion varies and usually may increase giving rise of GERD symptoms. Improvement of the sleep hygiene and sleep restriction therapy many be needed for the insomnia paient.
