NARCOLEPSY

Narcolepsy is a rare sleep disorder that disrupts the sleep-wake cycle

Symptoms of Narcolepsy:

  • Excessive Daytime Sleepiness: This is where you repeatedly fall asleep throughout the day. It can feel like an irresistible urge to fall asleep. 
  • Cataplexy: Loss of muscle tone/muscle weakness on strong emotion such as laughter.
  • Sleep Paralysis & Hypnagogic Hallucinations: Sleep paralysis is where a person is awake but unable to move their body or able to talk. Usually accompanied with hallucinations such as seeing that someone is in your room. 
  • Disrupted Night Time Sleep: People with narcolepsy have extremely broken sleep, usually waking up every couple of hours
  • Nightmares: Vivid and frightening nightmares. Weighted blankets can really help with this. Check the best deals here. 

“To experience similar levels of fatigue and sleepiness as someone with narcolepsy, you would have to go 48-72 hours without sleep”

  • Narcolepsy affects 1 in 2000 people 
  • There are two types of narcolepsy: type 1 (with cataplexy) and type 2 (without cataplexy)
  • The average time to get a narcolepsy diagnosis is 8 to 15 years
