Avatar f tn I've been dealing with a form of dysautonomia since 2006, it has now turned into pots. I'm scheduled for a pacemaker right before Thanksgiving. I wear the stockings, eat salt and massive water. I have extreme fatigue regardless of what I do...no anemia...take b12, vit d is ok..but the past 6-8 months I've experienced extreme sleepiness almost to the narcolepsy degree..my life which was already fractured due to the other horrible symptoms has pretty much come to a stand still...
Avatar f tn Hello. My 11 year old son was diagnosed at 8 with TS. A couple of months ago, he started to collapse. There would be nothing that would trigger or warn of this collapse. You would just turn around and he would be on the ground. He would often be out for 1 to 4 minutes. When he came to, he would yawn, stretch and immediately go back to whatever he was doing. He is now experiencing 10 to 20 of these episodes a day.
2018891 tn?1329003897 Hi everyone I was diagnosed in 2010 with Narcolepsy & Cataplexy. One thing that I've been wondering, does anyone here get a severe headache after a cataplexic episode/sleep attack? I was in the hospital for a week in october because I kept "passing out" although that's not what I called it. I would feel strange, fall over, and be completely limp for 30ish seconds. Then I would get up and sometimes have trouble walking and a few hours later I would get a MASSIVE headache.
Avatar n tn I have a miniature dachshund that is approximately ten years old. Okay so my dachshund has cysts on her body in various areas, although most of them are on her upper body. I asked my vet and he said that it was completely normal for older dachshunds to have cysts like that. Also sometimes during the year she will get an allergic reaction type of thing where she gets hives and in bad cases she will get her entire face swells up..

362692 tn?1248639193 We have 2 1/2 year old miniature wirehaired male neutered dachshund. A wonderful member of our family known as "Evan". Yesterday a neighbor brought us what appears to be a miniature Wheaton wired hair miniature male dachshund that has been abandoned. He is nothing but skin and bones. She tried to find the owners and could not. She could not keep him. Anyway she knew we love this breed and we fell in love with him. We introduced him to Evan and let them play before we made decision.
1490116 tn?1304817137 Hi everyone- I just want to have your feedback on this subject. My dachshund and Cornish Rex cat have seen me through more surgeries and pain trials than anyone! It's like they can read my mind! I actually think their little spirits have a part in lowering my pain and when they are not around I notice an increase in my discomfort. I would love to hear peoples experiences on this subject especially with the Holidays approaching.
Avatar f tn I am diagnosis with narcolepsy and have had symptoms for 5 years now. I have been taking 500 mg. of nuvigil for over 2 years. Plus, 60 mg of adderall a day. My symptoms have slowed down a little, but I have to take 2 naps a day and not drive anywhere. I have sleep studies twice a year and it seems to get worse each time. Its very aggravating to me! It seems like something would help. I see a team of specialists at Vanderbilt, but I need something else, but what? Anyone have any suggestions?
1287446 tn?1313947638 Hi everyone. I am not familiar with Narcolepsy or sleep disorders in general but my sleep has always been different. Typically, I fight daytime sleepiness with caffeine. In prior years, the caffeine has been a lot but I’ve lowered it significantly.
Avatar f tn I have Narcolepsy- My vitamin B 12 level is 235- should it be higher for my condition?
Avatar f tn Although the pt has RLS and PLMS, the arousal associated with these do not likely explain EDS- given a short overall sleep and REM latency, consider narcolepsy clinically. I had 156 arousals, 110 spontaneous, the rest due to limb movement. I also spent most of my sleep time in sleep stages 1 and 2, whith REM episodes scattered randomly. I had no time in stage 3, and when I had REM sleep it was from wake to REM with no progression through the other cycles.
Avatar n tn The combination of this study and my first MSLT nap study produced a perfect pattern for diagnosis of Narcolepsy. Has there ever been a study to look at the coorelation between the 2 diseases. Would many CFS sufferers be classified narcoleptic if they took the appropriate test? Narcolepsy leads back to hippothalmus and lack of production of hypocretin/orexin(?). Seems like all things lead to hippothalmus. Thank you!
Avatar m tn My miniature dachshund has a reasonably sized growth by his penis. I can press it down and it goes away for asecond then just comes right back. He doesn't act like it bothers him though. What can this be and what can I do to help? I am asking because I cannot afford to take my dog to the veterinarian's office. Thanks for your help.
Avatar n tn My miniature dachshund is 8 years old. on Monday late evening he stopped moving in is hind two legs. We took him to the vet next day evening. We were told by our vet to go the neurologist as emergency and then may be surgery. We preferred to try if something works via medicine..today is Thursday and my pet is still not moving on his hind legs.Any suggestions???
Avatar n tn Since childhood I have many symptoms of Narcolepsy and other sleep Disorders. My AVNRT (130 and 180 heart rate, two Re-Entrants) was ablated in 2000. November 9, 2008 my high heart rate of 130 returned at night. The search my cardio had was the Why, and stumbled onto sleep issues and found pulse Oximetry test positive for hypoxia and sleep apnea. As we go down this tributary, I am told they give you a CPAP and do not worry why. Let's see in three months.
421115 tn?1203444430 Just monday of this week my brother had to put his dachshund down because of a tumor that grew to the size of a grapefruit under her chest in just two weeks. His gretchen did have a melanoma mole or something removed last november. But they said they got it all. It was horrible. I just don't know what to do or where to get a good vet who knows about dachshunds. Can you give me some infomation.
Avatar f tn I have a stupid little dachshund who is already in trouble with the cops around here because he sent my step dad to the er
Avatar f tn i was wondering if i should be tested for narcolepsy, or if diagnosed with narcolepsy would they prescribe me to something similar to adderrall? if this were the case, being tested would not matter much if they would give me the same medications anyways. I just dont want to be misdiagnosed and on the wrong medication for the rest of my life.
Avatar f tn My 2 1/2 yr old miniature dachshund is having trouble jumping up on to things. She hesitates to even jump up the steps. This started yesterday. What do you suggest we do about it?
535822 tn?1443976780 A new review published in the journal Public Library of Science ONE confirms that Pandemrix, a swine flu vaccine produced by drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), is responsible for causing an up to 1700 percent increase in narcolepsy among children and teenagers under 17 years of age. Based on their findings, a cohort of scientists has determined that narcolepsy rates increased significantly following mass vaccination campaigns with Pandemrix.
Avatar m tn Yes, narcolepsy can result in disturbed nighttime sleep. Narcolepsy can only be diagnosed with a multiple sleep latency test during the day (usually preceded by an all night sleep study). Dr.
1745492 tn?1320198340 My husband was diagnosed with severe obstructive sleep apnea and narcolepsy about 5 years ago and the narcolepsy is under control with 200 mg of Provigil. He had hypnogogic hallucinations, body jerks when falling sleep, imaginary conversations with no one, talked in his sleep, fell asleep driving, talking and even in activities you'd never imagine a male would fall asleep. He appears to always have had it since about puberty but it got worse as his sleep apnea did.
Avatar n tn has anyone heard what vaccination is reportedly linked to narcolepsy? i saw a show yesterday about narcolepsy and they mentioned a vaccination was given to a 13 year old girl and 2 hours later she was experiencing cataplexly (a paralyzing catatonic state that is a symptom of narcolepsy) but they did not say which vaccination.
