Absolutely: Contact your pcp for referral for a sleep study, or polysomnogram. There are many possible causes of sleep fragmentation, and a disruption in the amount of any state of sleep can cause memory, concentration and mood disruption. In my practice, we deal primarily with obstructive sleep apnea. The patients report your symptoms and fatigue; the bed partners also suffer (from the noise!). Get checked!
