Common Questions and Answers about Narcolepsy in mice


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.
1981227 tn?1336328438 I think we have talked about this stem cell treatment and the reversal in mice before but I don't remember the sugar study. Even if it is old news, it is always good to share because not everyone sees it the first time around. Thanks for passing these on.
Avatar n tn Ok I have a red tail boa and I feed him mice. I'm about a month pregnant and was wondering if its ok to handle the mice and clean out their tank? Thank you.
649848 tn?1534633700 Oh no, it sounds like you have quite a problem on your hands. Strange that things would start spring leaks now. Have they only recently been installed with wrong joints or have they been that way for years? For the mice - think about getting some peppermint oil and soak cottonballs with it to put around the house. I put them in glass bowls to prevent damage to any surfaces. That sure got rid of the mice in my Aunt's garage, even without sealing it up right away.
Avatar m tn I would describe the pain as deep (feels like it is in the bone), sharp/stabbing (Severity a 7-9 on a scale of 10 - where 10 is excruciating pain) and short in duration (lasts 3-10 seconds). It occurs frequently throughout my day and randomly in different places on my body (i.e. ribs, shoulder, upper and lower arms, fingers, upper and lower legs and sometimes my head). I'm also always fatigued, sleepy and low energy, but I keep myself moving and motivated.
665881 tn?1248926997 and this is in mice - and mice don't get MS..... people do. Erin, I know you want to be excited about this, but there are lots of other developments that give us hope too. Don't get down waiting for a cure, ok?
Avatar m tn To examine Hoxb8’s effect, the researchers injected bone marrow from mice with mutant Hoxb8 mice into healthy mice. The healthy mice began licking themselves compulsively, pulling out their fur and creating sores. In turn, the researchers injected the mutant mice with healthy bone marrow, and these mice became non-obsessive.
Avatar m tn In conclusion… Prohep was effective in reducing HCC growth significantly in mice. Th17 was likely to be the major producer of IL-17 in the tumor microenvironment that has linked to HCC growth and angiogenesis, and its decrease in tumor was probably related to the reduced recruitment from the gut via circulation.

Avatar f tn symptoms disappeared with some quality sleep over time. A diagnosis of narcolepsy can radically affect your life in regards to driving license rights and insurability. I wouldn't accept that label until there's nothing else to do to help your symptoms. Then after that, it is what it is.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with CFIDS in 1994. Narcolepsy in 2005. I get basically no stage 4 or Rem sleep at night. Its no wonder why our mind and muscles can't heal themselves. I can go into almost instant dreaming during day (MSLT naps). I haven't been able to get anyone to help me figure out how to correct my sleep cycle. If you get any ideas, let me know. (I am on meds to help sleep and keep me awake at the right times, but it hasn't helped the sleep cycles.
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.
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 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 Diagnosis is relatively easy when all the symptoms of narcolepsy are present.Two tests that are commonly used in diagnosing narcolepsy are the polysomnogram and the multiple sleep latency test which are usually performed by a sleep specialist. The drowsiness is normally treated using amphetamine-like stimulants.
Avatar f tn Take a look at this forum. You might have the same symptoms as many of these people and there are a couple suggestions. I found it interesting to know others had the same sensations and all around the same age. I was 17 or 18 when mine started. Still not sure what it is but have much better idea about possibilities I never even considered which is great since it's gotten much worse in short time.
649848 tn?1534633700 t seen this evidence in detail, he could see mice had been around) and has killed about seven mice since then, and this past weekend we vacuumed and mopped and removed all places where there was mouse evidence, and I've taken our cats over and they are at the farm now. But it feels kind of grim.
Avatar n tn How can I treat my cat with ear mice?
Avatar f tn I have Narcolepsy- My vitamin B 12 level is 235- should it be higher for my condition?
Avatar m tn do not come into contact with the dead mice their droppings or any surfaces the mice have come in contact with. U can contact a disease called lvcm which is dangerous to an unborn baby. Have a non pregnant person dispose of the mice and their droppings and clean infected areas with bleach to kill the virus. Also winterize ur home to keep them out and call in an exterminator. Also notify ur ob u have had contact with rodents so they can monitor things.
319532 tn?1250988576 Here's a statement from another website ("Strikingly, if it was given after the mice developed full-blown symptoms, lisinopril reversed their paralysis." This is the second real promising discovery i've seen in the past week or so.
Avatar f tn After giving birth to my 2nd child, I had an MRI of my lower back to help determine the cause of low back pain. It showed a bulging disc and a herniated disc at L4-L5 and L5-S1. Underwent disc decompression and that corrected this. The pain was still there. My GP determined that the little fatty "knots" in my low back were back mice and began injecting them wtih lidocaine. This gave me temporary relief. I'm still having pain and the back mice are still there.
Avatar m tn Your history is suggestive of narcolepsy. In this condition there will be excessive daytime sleepiness. But in your case it seems milder form of it. In this condition there will be “automatic behavior" such as driving past a highway exit or go into sleep or writing off a page, with no memory of the previous few minutes. Classical narcolepsy constitutes of Hypnagogic hallucinations, Sleep paralysis and Cataplexy which is not seen in your case.
649848 tn?1534633700 Good morning. I hope you're having a great weekend. It's been raining here - seems like it's been days and days - actually, it has been. We've had something around 11" of rain this month. Some has come in small showers and some has come in downpours of 2" or more in a short period. I hate to complain of dealing with rain, when there are parts of the country/world who desperately need it.
134578 tn?1614729226 My cat has a new hobby, carrying live mice into the house in the middle of the night. He rarely seems interested in actually killing them, acting more like he does it for entertainment purposes. This includes chasing them around (including up the blankets into our bed), stepping on them to see if they will squeak, tucking them under our bed and forgetting they are there until they move around a day later -- evidently he thinks they are unusually animated toys, certainly not dinner.
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.
