1796826 tn?1578874779 I was using opioids for ten years, but the first five were more using here and there, call it "honeymoon phase". So now I've been clean as long as I was in a "committed relationship" with opioids. Funny how it's such a big national crisis now. Back in 2003-04 I used to order Vicodin off the Internet. Doctors gave it out like candy. Sowing the seeds of the current crisis but no one seemed to care back then! I personally don't blame the doctors.
1704625 tn?1310708761 Hello, everyone, I am fairly new to medhelp, and the sleep disorders community. I have narcolepsy, and was diagnosed about 4 years ago, or close to that. I was wondering if anybody else who has been diagnosed is still in denial after that long, questioning....maybe it's something else?! I can't believe I have narcolepsy.
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.
11941637 tn?1422287346 s or Lupus, has also been diagnosed with or shown symptoms of Narcolepsy. I have read recently that Narcolepsy has been determined to be auto-immune in nature, and wonder if the presence of one or both of these disorders in my genetics was the cause of my Narcolepsy. Has there been any research done on the subject?
Avatar f tn I hate not knowing and trying to find ways to make it through the day. Also you might want to look at narcolepsy. I thought I might have Narcolepsy, since I have the hullicinations sometimes. When the doctor told me I had hypersomnia I asked if he was sure it was not narcolepsy. He told me one of the differences is naps help people with narcolepsy, but not those with hypersomnia. And napping never made sense to me, because it did nothing to relieve the tiredness.
Avatar n tn no sexual activity and I do work out and sweat but have always ben very hygenic with my southern region. Any help will be appreciated because it is very annoying.
Avatar f tn But you have a fertile window of 3 days and anytime you bd the sperm can live up to five days.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with narcolepsy approx. 5 yrs. ago. I haven't gone for another sleep study since, nor has my doctor seem to ever remember that I have narcolepsy. I am his only patient with narcolepsy, and if I ever end up in his office, it seems like he always forgets that I have narcolepsy. I don't believe he has a good understanding of this. Any suggestions. I am in the process of trying to switch my doctor, but in the meanwhile, I have been more tired lately than usual.
Avatar n tn Regarding the sore on your hard pallet- have you seen a dentist about this to get a proper diagnosis about it? Have you tried holding plain yogurt against it with a spoon for five minutes a couple times a day to see if that might help it?
Avatar f tn What you are experiencing is Hypnagogic Hallucinations. Well from what it sounds it sounds like that.. Are you seeing anything during the day? If so, then id lean more to the schizophrenia side, if not, I'd be saying a sleep disoder(specifically narcolepsy). I'm not a doctor, or anything. I'm a 17 year old that was just diagnosed with narcolepsy, and hypnagogic hallucinations were my #1 symptom, I'd see everything from people to dancing animals to feeling like someone is on me.
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?
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 f tn He explains that nasolabial folds are the outer parts of nose and cheek that meet upper lip and usually not affected by Lupus. This got me confused--I'm not sure if he means the skin by the nose and beside the cheek or when he says upper lip does that mean under the nose? Also he mentions that USUALLY not affected by Lupus. Does that mean some people still may have Lupus if it's not in that area where the rash is?
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 n tn I just got back from my Neurologists office and it looks like I have Narcolepsy. I have a host of symptoms that I listed in this thread. http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/665901 I didn't realize at the time but he apparently checked my blood for a Narcolepsy gene in which the result says of the 6 possible genes I am positive for 4 of them?????
Avatar n tn Oops that was the wrong post. Sorry guys. This is what I wanted to tell you: See a sleep center. Recurrent "Bells Palsy" is actually very characteristic of narcolepsy with cataplexy. In fact, often times, it's not "Bells Palsy," but cataplexy. Viruses and some vaccines (namely the H1N1) can actually precipitate this, but it can happen seemingly in random fashion, too. It doesn't look the way you think it looks.
427801 tn?1203844562 She is a few years older than me and said she started noticing the same thing when she was my age (23 at the time), and shes since been diagnosed with Narcolepsy. She said the problems progressed into her falling asleep at lights. Then her falling asleep at dinner. Finally after being diagnosed, she was put on a medication to keep her alert (Cylert maybe?) and she says its helped. Well my parents are seriously concerned that I may have it as well.

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 n tn About 2 years ago, after a long day of walking, the skin around my groin in the folds broke out in super-itchy, inflamed red rashes. I used OTC hydrocortisone cream, and the problem subsided significantly. However, ever since, I've had a permenant rash running up the exact middle of my skin folds where the leg meets the groin area - probably about 5 inches long right in the middle of the leg crease.
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.
