Economy Affects Sleep Disorders

Some Americans might be losing sleep over some tough economic times.

That's according to a new study that takes a look at how your bottom line can affect your ability to nod off.

A recent survey finds one third of Americans have trouble sleeping because of the rotten economy.

Experts say poor sleep or lack of sleep can impact the body's organ systems.

They recommend you see your doctor if you've had sleep issues for more than a month.

If you can’t undergo a sleep study, doctors warn against using over the counter medicines to treat yourself.

Keeping a sleep diary or creating a relaxing bedtime routine can help you get the zzz's you've been missing.
