Some of the most common symptoms of narcolepsy include:

 
  • Excessive sleepiness

  • Vivid dreams when lying down to sleep or upon waking up

  • Loss of muscle control with emotion

  • Sleep paralysis, the inability to move upon waking from sleep

  • Automatic behavior, performing routine tasks without being aware of performing the activity

Sometimes narcolepsy runs in families, but many people with narcolepsy do not have family members who are affected.

Treatment

 

There are medications that are helpful in treating narcolepsy. Short, strategic naps may also improve alertness. Education for family members about narcolepsy is also helpful.

If you would like more information, or you suspect you may suffer from narcolepsy, please consult your physician, or contact our Sleep Center at 920-431-3041
