Yes, there are tests: Comprehensive evaluations for sleep disorders are possible with psychiatrists and sleep medicine specialists. Often these can be the same physician, as many are double-boarded. Sleep studies can be arranged in sleep labs, as needed.

Sleep problems?: Sleep medications are only temporary fixes for sleep disorders. Sometimes a sleep lab can be helpful in diagnosing the nature of sleep problems but my experience is that psychological approaches usually work effectively. I encourage patients to read the book
no more sleepless nights by peter hauri and shirley linde as the treatment approach is effective, safe, and widely accepted.
