Tossing and Turing During Sleep

Many different problems can contribute to or cause tossing and tuning during sleep, including pain issues, environmental problems, or medications. Sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), periodic limb movements (PLM’s), parasomnias (such as sleepwalking, night terrors), or insomnia also may contribute to this problem. Patients who toss and turn frequently during sleep often report feeling fatigued or sleepy during the day, and they often disrupt the bad partner’s sleep.
