589816 tn?1332976771 Does he have narcolepsy with cataplexy? Or is it without cataplexy? Xyrem is a drug approved for treating narcolepsy with cataplexy, and it's taken at night in two separate doses. It combats one of the most important symptom of narcolepsy, aside from cataplexy: fragmented night-time sleep. Just to give a bit more background in case I'm catching you off-base.....
668092 tn?1225464120 I wanna be able to talk with others that have this condition because I feel like no one understands what im going through. I also have a condition called Cataplexy which is very rare and I have narcolepsy. If you wanna learn more about what I have I made a site that explains everything I have and what it is, http://www.piczo.

Avatar n tn He was not sure I had crps though bone scan suggested it, He was talking about possible synvisc injections in 6 weeks, last resort is an epidural. You see I suffer from narcolepsy/cataplexy and pain triggers off muscle tone loss of total body so even upon inserting the injection I would go limp hear everything but cant move., part of the cataplexy.
7928796 tn?1396351929 ll red flag you. I used a third party (Larsen Billing) and it cost me $20 but they code everything so insurance pays. My insurance online provider search gave me in network options that were actually covered 100% for certain midwives, but bc I chose out of network my insurance is paying 75%, still not too terribly bad. I absolutely adore my midwife. She's absolutely wonderful!
Avatar f tn I know I'm not loosing it. To send a message to someone on a discussion, you have to copy a code. If you can't get the code correct, you don't get through. Again, I don't understand how to read or put the code down correctly. O really hope I'm making sense.
1438412 tn?1315507919 This asked me to enter code but where code should be there was nothing
Avatar n tn d give you a link. There is also info on the narcolepsy network site that you should be able to find if you google their name and cataplexy. Feel free to message me with questions on ruling that out (I have it). Heiferly.
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!
2059648 tn?1439766665 Either ask your doctor to ask your insurance company what is the allowable charge for the particular CPT code of the test that you want, or call your insurance company and ask them directly. Concurrently, you could ask what percentage of allowable the insurance company will pay, or equivalently, what will be your patient responsibility. Don't forget to take into account any annual deductible that you haven't met yet!
378497 tn?1232143585 As an added bonus, the radiology people have, for the last year, been filing the MRI sedation for me and my youngest son (he has a Chiari 1 malformation) with the wrong billing code, and the claims have been denied. How can the largest radiological association in TOWN not know the right billing code when filing with Blue Cross? Now, I have to shuttle between them and insurance to make sure everything gets fixed. Why do we have to do everyone's jobs for them?
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 f tn Also there is a NIH-funded Hepatitis B Research Network (HBRN) study whihc has a database or registry of patients with hep B. They will be collecting and storing blood for subsequent HBsAg quantitation. they said they are in the process of getting a fibroscann for the study 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 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.
1745492 tn?1320198340 My husband was diagnosed with severe obstructive sleep apnea and narcolepsy about 5 years ago and the narcolepsy is under control with 200 mg of Provigil. He had hypnogogic hallucinations, body jerks when falling sleep, imaginary conversations with no one, talked in his sleep, fell asleep driving, talking and even in activities you'd never imagine a male would fall asleep. He appears to always have had it since about puberty but it got worse as his sleep apnea did.
Avatar n tn has anyone heard what vaccination is reportedly linked to narcolepsy? i saw a show yesterday about narcolepsy and they mentioned a vaccination was given to a 13 year old girl and 2 hours later she was experiencing cataplexly (a paralyzing catatonic state that is a symptom of narcolepsy) but they did not say which vaccination.
