narcolepsy

1764925 tn?1370785147 hence the doctors have tried to rule out narcolepsy, which causes excessive sleepiness. Narcolepsy is characterized by excessive day time sleepiness, sleep paralysis, cataplexy where the person has episodes of loss of muscle function while awake, hypnogogic hallucinations and automatic behavior. Narcolepsy is diagnosed by the sleep onset REM episodes (SOREMs), wherein the person goes into the dream phase or REM cycle soon after sleep onset.
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 f tn I was hospitalized for 5 days not too long ago and my heart rate was sinus tach. at about 140-150. I also have narcolepsy and need to take stimulants to stay awake, but they make my heart unbearable. I have narcolepsy with cataplexy and it seems that any increase in stimulants causes more cataplexy which makes my neurologist think its centrally mediated. I dont want to jump into another ablation until its all figured out. Any ideas?
Avatar m tn 22 hours is far more than I oversleep but I lose several hours a day. I thought of narcolepsy and other problems and will ask a doctor next week. If he can help I will put it on the forum for you.
Avatar m tn m also always fatigued, sleepy and low energy, but I keep myself moving and motivated. I have been seeing a sleep specialist who diagnosed me with Narcolepsy (Polysomnograph and MSLT both suggestive of narcolepsy i.e. 4 SOREMs with mean latency of <8 minutes) About me: 24 years old white male, fair skinned with dark blonde hair, 6''0", 195lbs, in shape and athletic (work out and jog 5-6 days of the week). University educated and work in government policy, 9:00-5:00.
Avatar f tn t mention it but the second most commonly associated symptoms of Narcolepsy is Cataplexy, this basically causes sudden loss of muscle tone, weakness and loss of voluntary muscle control. IF you don't have a specific medical explanation, it's 'possible' for you to also be experiencing mini cataplexic attacks to explain the muscle and foot lift/drop issues......I would highly recommend you consider consulting with a health care provider that specialises in Narcolepsy.
Avatar f tn be consistent with MS, but the doctors made the decision that we would follow that up in six months with another MRI. They are now suggesting that his problem is narcolepsy and cataplexy. We have been told to follow-up with a neurologist and have another, more specific sleep study. It takes weeks to get these appts, so now we wait. Do you know of anything that can be done to help a child with TS and possible Narcolepsy?
Avatar m tn Hypersomnia is sometimes misdiagnosed as narcolepsy where a person experiences a sudden onset of sleepiness. The causes can be genetic, brain damage or medical disorders such as clinical depression, uremia and fibromyalgia. Sometimes hypersomnia may be other sleep disorders such as narcolepsy, sleep apnea, and restless leg syndrome. Your symptoms may be linked to depression. You should consult a psychologist for a complete medical and psychological workup.
Avatar f tn have been in past 10-20 yrs dealing asthma, sleep apnea, narcolepsy,vertigo,anxiety/stress. for 12 days have had an onset of some mild memory loss,confusion,losing of time a little,extreme exhaustion, muscle weakness, i believe muscle wasting in calves, muscle twitching(have had in past). numbing tingling in forearms, hands,feet, lower legs.back pain middle to lower back. neck stiff. I work hard and drive alot.
3065262 tn?1342122561 If all these are ruled out then it is possible that you have narcolepsy, which is a neurological disorder. This is thought to be caused by low protein called hypocretin, which is made in the brain. The symptoms are an urge to sleep especially after meals. Sleep studies and EEG are done to rule out other causes of poor sleep and insomnia. Eating light and frequent meals during the day helps. Also assigning a nap time during the day often helps. You can take a light meal before this.
Avatar n tn Herpes simplex (HSV) and herpes zoster have been identified as the cause of Bells palsy in a large number of cases.Other causes include tumor, meningitis, stroke, diabetes mellitus, head trauma. Most of us have a dormant HSV in our body and it needs to be reactivated to cause Bells palsy. The reactivated virus can certainly cause damage to the facial nerve. Did your husband suffer from Herpes simplex or Herpes zoster? Herpes simplex is contagious but herpes zoster isn't. Best..
Avatar n tn This happened to me!
Avatar n tn Yes. My brother's paternal grandfather got it 3 times in his life. The second time he lost most of his ability to smile normally and it didn't fully leave. After the third time he was permanently paralyzed on that side of his face. (Although it was suggested that the third time wasn't Bell's Palsy but a minor stroke as he died from a major stroke several years later.) Unfortunately I don't think it's known what causes it, so a repeated occurrence is unpreventable.
Avatar m tn Hopefully your son is under a doctor's care. There are medical causes of extreme tiredness - diabetes, hypothyroid, anemia, just to name a few. Also, he could have a sleep disorder preventing his sleep from being restful thus requiring more of it. If all else is ruled out, the doctor may want to evaluate him for narcolepsy. Do encourage him to follow up on every possibilty until the answer is uncovered.
Avatar f tn With any sleep related thing, see a sleep specialist! This is vital. Similar things happen to me as I have narcolepsy, but it very well may be something else. Do see a doctor.
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!
