Do I need to visit a sleep lab?

Spending the night in a sleep lab can help your doctor determine if you suffer from a sleep disorder like sleep apnea, narcolepsy, or restless leg syndrome, among others. But spending the night sleeping in a different bed and away from your home can feel daunting, especially when you're attached to dozens of wires.

Dr. Breus talks about why your doctor might suggest you visit a sleep lab, and why increasingly, doctors are turning to home sleep tests for their patients.

And the best part? You can order an at-home sleep test directly from and have your results interpreted by a board-certified physician. Learn more here:

  1. I find it interesting that this video went live just a few hours after I went to a sleep doctor for testing. She did suggest the lab sleep testing. And explained that the at home test doesn’t really get that much info. But one thing is certain. I would NOT get much sleep with all that stuff on my head. I’m afraid the technology just isn’t good enough yet.
