Avatar f tn Sleep paralysis is a very common feature of narcolepsy. How old are you? I was convinced I had narcolepsy when I went but I ended up having periodic limb movement disorder. It's where you kick your legs and move your arms all night long. Every time I would get into REM, I would kick my legs or move my arms and it would jerk me out of it. That's what caused me to remember my dreams vividly. I would wake up mid REM cycle.

Make sure your diet is mostly whole foods including low-fat dairy, whole-grains, lean protein, fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts and healthy oils. Don't skip breakfast. Don't get in the habit of staying up late, then rush to get to class. You need food to get your metabolism up, your energy levels will be low and you'll be starving and likely to overeat by lunch.

I don't have access to home-cooked meals, just what they serve in the dining hall or take out/frozen foods. I've recently stopped drinking soda and cut down on the coffee.

Avatar n tn I am in a similar boat. I made some crazy mistakes in college and have put myself at risk because of it. All of us had been in college and I'm 20 currently. some of the guys I'd been with between 18 or my age. I'd been told everyone had testing done and that they were negative. I'm going to get tested today but I'm scared out of my mind.
Avatar f tn I am a 19 year old male in college. Starting around my freshman year of high school I noticed I was falling asleep in all my classes every day.

Avatar f tn The answer to your question will depend upon the college. Fortunately, every college will have an office that handles arranging additional supports for students who need them.

If you're living at home, a local community college might be a great option and they will also have an office in charge of making sure that students like you recieve needed support.
Avatar m tn The vast majority of doctors have absolutely no idea what it is or what it looks like, and no routine lab tests, MRI, CT scan, x-ray or anything of that nature will detect it. 75% of people with narcolepsy never get diagnosed in their lifetime. It doesn't look the way you think it looks. Common misdiagnoses are depression, epilepsy, and migraines. I struggled for years to find an answer, and was misdiagnosed several times.

Avatar f tn Yeah, being in college while pregnant is rough. I would still enroll in the class that you need for spring semester, and then come on very good terms with your professor. If you just talk to some of them and explain your situation, most likely they'll let you take the exams early.

Avatar m tn m exhibiting and have been exhibiting for about 7 years. (Since 9th grade in high school, currently a senior in college) Excessive daytime sleepiness- This is not always constant but at random times I will become EXTREMELY tired, and on the verge of falling asleep.
