Avatar f tn I was diagnosed on 1999. I went on interferon from 1999-2000. I instantly had good results and was told I'm in "remission". That was 11 yrs. ago, and now my Hep C Virus Ab came back 11.0. Does anyone know if that could mean the virus is back?? I can't get in to see a liver Dr. for onver a month. Anyone know if this # is high?
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.

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 One thing someone told us on here, is right before getting her blood drawn, she spent the day in the sun, and of course, the sun put her in a flare the next day, and she showed all types of problems on her blood test. That's when the docs were able to treat her. Just ensure your doctor is aware of your flare, and that it's gone, but be ever vigilant on taking care.
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.
Avatar f tn I have Narcolepsy- My vitamin B 12 level is 235- should it be higher for my condition?
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.

1442059 tn?1340240952 What symptoms do people still have if their disease is in remission?Maybe some people have none however not me am I normal?
Avatar n tn I just wanted to let the world know that my mom was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer in sept. 2008.She just had a pet scan and it came up clean.It showed my mom is already in remission.What a blessing for her and our family for now!
Avatar f tn There were days(2-3 in a row) where my symptoms acted up in a worse fashion. But, for the most part, I was feeling pretty "normal". I believe that forcing myself to lightly excercise was a big help; if you're able.
Avatar m tn What does remission/recovery mean in terms of anxiety? I was diagnosed with anxiety in January, and my symptoms have improved. My worry is no longer excessive, but I still have irritability and feeling on edge. Would that mean I still have anxiety?
Avatar n tn My granddaughter was diagnosed 4 years ago. She will be 11 in November. For the past few days her sugar has been low. She is having a hard time bringing it back up. Even when she suspends her pump for hours her sugar stays 70-80 and she still feels low. She also has been able to control her sugar this summer with just physical activity. Is it possible for her to go into remission or honeymoon period?
Avatar f tn I have read on various sites that fibromyalgia has periods of remission. I have yet to experience this. I might have a better than average day per week, but that is about it. Do any of you experience periods of remission and for how long? I have been in a constant flare up for about a year now. I can look back over the years and see when i started to have some of the problems that i have now, and those symptoms started when i was about 25 and pregnant with my first son.
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.
