Sleep is absolutely essential for every individual. Whether you're a working adult or a five-year-old child, you cannot do without sleep. Speaking of the former, pediatric sleep disorders are an actual phenomenon.

Children need a little more sleep than adults do. When they do not get the requisite rest and rehabilitation, it can create issues for the child and their parents too. It may affect the child's performance in school and may induce temperamental issues as well.

Headaches and ear pain attributed to TMJ disorder (TMJD) occurs so frequently and severely that it can be a missed TMJD diagnosis and treated as migraines without looking at the root cause or structural issues of the jaw that can drive the headache pain. Having 8 - 15 headaches a month is considered chronic. Sleep disturbances, jaw clenching, improper dental occlusion, stressful events, earaches, water intake, weather changes, and physical activity can trigger headaches and migraines. When headaches persist, ruling out temporomandibular joint disorder may provide clarity for the root cause. For treatment options contact a Koala Center for Sleep Disorders near you.

Is It Really ADD or ADHD?

https://www.koalasleepcenters.com/locations-alexandria-va

Asking the right questions can lead to insights that were previously unknown. Did you know that 25-50% of children diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) also have sleep-related problems? Michael Fulbright, DDS, states that sleep apnea is often a missed diagnosis in children who experience symptoms associated with ADHD. Ongoing research findings show there is a correlation between sleep apnea and ADHD. Doctors and parents may be missing the sleep connection when having their child's symptoms evaluated for ADHD, symptoms such as behavior issues, an inability to concentrate, and apparent hyperactivity. Left untreated, sleep disorders can lead to serious medical conditions.

Nights of snoring with interrupted sleep and daytime sleepiness, drowsy driving, depression or impaired cognitive skills are signs of a more serious condition known as sleep apnea. The Academy of Sleep Medicine and Sleep Research Society states; adults need an average of seven hours of sleep per night for optimal health. Sleep Apnea can trigger "fight or flight", it's the bodies response to react with cortisol or adrenaline to shock the body to start breathing again. When snoring causes breathing to stop during sleep, oxygen levels drop, blood pressure rises and the heart beats faster, it's time to get evaluated for sleep apnea.

Night Terrors (Sleep Terrors) differ from nightmares. The dreamer of a nightmare wakes up from the dream and may remember details, but a person who has a sleep terror episode remains asleep. The most affected age group are children 3-12 years old, and they usually don't remember anything about their sleep terrors the following morning. Mayo clinic states: "Sleep terrors are considered a parasomnia lasting seconds to several minutes. Research finds that sleep disorders such as sleep apnea frequently coexist and can trigger sleep terrors. Due to daytime symptoms such as behavior disturbances, difficulties at school, headaches, excessive sleepiness or hyperactivity, treating sleeping disorders that interrupt daily functioning are critical for childhood development."

Nightmares or Sweet Dreams?

Many of us have experienced a nightmare at some point in our lifetime. These are dreams that are perceived as being negative and may cause you to wake up and feel fearful or anxious. Nightmare occurrences involve intense dreaming and may create sadness, irritation, and other negative feelings. Nightmares among children are common and generally do not interfere drastically with sleep quality. However, there are two other conditions, sleep terrors (night terrors) and nightmare disorders, that have been found to coexist with childhood sleep disorders according to a study done at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital.

Kids' Allergies That Don't Take a Break

https://www.koalasleepcenters.com/locations-alexandria-va

The Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) estimates that 50 million people in the United States experience allergies. Our immune systems attempt to react to substances that irritate the body by releasing histamines, which cause discomforts such as sneezing and watery eyes. Allergic rhinitis, which is the proper term for allergies affected by nasal and airway inflammation, may surface on a seasonal basis or last all year long. Snoring and the daily effects of sleep disturbances are associated with allergies as they link to similar performance and behavior issues. Parents should be aware that children with allergies that impair their ability to sleep are more likely to struggle at school and at home with symptoms related to lack of restorative sleep.
