These are some of the few symptoms of my narcolepsy. It frequently affects people who have narcolepsy
, a disorder whose principal signs
are EDS (Excessive Daytime Sleepiness), sleep attacks, sleep paralysis, hypnagogic hallucinations and disturbed night-time sleep. Cataplexy is sometimes confused with epilepsy, where a series of flashes or other stimuli cause superficially similar seizures. The term narcolepsy gets people confused because they only recognize the cataplexy and not the EDS.
