1704625 tn?1310708761 Hello, everyone, I am fairly new to medhelp, and the sleep disorders community. I have narcolepsy, and was diagnosed about 4 years ago, or close to that. I was wondering if anybody else who has been diagnosed is still in denial after that long, questioning....maybe it's something else?! I can't believe I have narcolepsy.
Avatar f tn I've been dealing with a form of dysautonomia since 2006, it has now turned into pots. I'm scheduled for a pacemaker right before Thanksgiving. I wear the stockings, eat salt and massive water. I have extreme fatigue regardless of what I do...no anemia...take b12, vit d is ok..but the past 6-8 months I've experienced extreme sleepiness almost to the narcolepsy degree..my life which was already fractured due to the other horrible symptoms has pretty much come to a stand still...
Avatar f tn Hello. My 11 year old son was diagnosed at 8 with TS. A couple of months ago, he started to collapse. There would be nothing that would trigger or warn of this collapse. You would just turn around and he would be on the ground. He would often be out for 1 to 4 minutes. When he came to, he would yawn, stretch and immediately go back to whatever he was doing. He is now experiencing 10 to 20 of these episodes a day.
Avatar f tn m keen to get your thoughts on what you think could be useful in an app? I.e better ways of connecting with eachother, sharing stories, getting video advice, organising charity work, looking for events etc. There's no wrong answer! Many thanks for your time. Any feedback is appreciated.
2018891 tn?1329003897 Hi everyone I was diagnosed in 2010 with Narcolepsy & Cataplexy. One thing that I've been wondering, does anyone here get a severe headache after a cataplexic episode/sleep attack? I was in the hospital for a week in october because I kept "passing out" although that's not what I called it. I would feel strange, fall over, and be completely limp for 30ish seconds. Then I would get up and sometimes have trouble walking and a few hours later I would get a MASSIVE headache.

If the findings prove accurate, it would be the first time anyone has managed to grow a functional human organ from stem cells produced from human skin.
Avatar n tn Boys there age like to Ben naked. Tell them it’s perfectly fine for them to be naked. Tell them that nudity is private and they must never video or take pictures of themselves or show anyone if they don’t want to.
649848 tn?1534633700 http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/11/opinions/jillette-presidential-candidate-videos/ (CNN) "I just watched a bunch of the presidential candidates' announcement videos, one after the other. I won't try to guess how they might affect "would-be voters." I'm going to struggle to explain how these stupid videos affected one would-be voter: me. I'm a political hedonist. I want to feel good about my gal or guy. I don't want to just feel only less horrible.
1747881 tn?1546175878 The State Department, in a stunning admission, acknowledged Wednesday that an official intentionally deleted several minutes of video footage from a 2013 press briefing, where a top spokeswoman seemed to acknowledge misleading the press over the Iran nuclear deal. “There was a deliberate request [to delete the footage] – this wasn’t a technical glitch,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said Wednesday, in admitting that an unidentified official had a video editor “excise” the segment.
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!
Avatar n tn Since childhood I have many symptoms of Narcolepsy and other sleep Disorders. My AVNRT (130 and 180 heart rate, two Re-Entrants) was ablated in 2000. November 9, 2008 my high heart rate of 130 returned at night. The search my cardio had was the Why, and stumbled onto sleep issues and found pulse Oximetry test positive for hypoxia and sleep apnea. As we go down this tributary, I am told they give you a CPAP and do not worry why. Let's see in three months.
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 I just thought Id start a thread and invite everyone to add their own favorite video links to songs that help them relieve stress and or make them feel good. The song I want to share is a family favorite here in our household for 'BAD' days when the world just seems crazy and you feel like your about to snap..... the kids and I sing it LOUDLY (we are normally easy listening type people but this is HEAVY metal) called 'Let the bodies hit the floor" by drowning pool.
427801 tn?1203844562 She is a few years older than me and said she started noticing the same thing when she was my age (23 at the time), and shes since been diagnosed with Narcolepsy. She said the problems progressed into her falling asleep at lights. Then her falling asleep at dinner. Finally after being diagnosed, she was put on a medication to keep her alert (Cylert maybe?) and she says its helped. Well my parents are seriously concerned that I may have it 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.
