Warning symptoms of narcolepsy
Other narcolepsy symptoms include
- Cataplexy -- short-lived intermittent muscle weakness
- Hypnagogic hallucinations -- hallucinations while falling asleep or waking
- Sleep paralysis -- paralysis while falling asleep or waking
- Disturbed nocturnal sleep -- waking up repeatedly throughout the night
- Leg jerks, nightmares, and restlessness
Narcolepsy usually begins in the teens or early twenties. The Epworth Sleepiness Scale is often used to help identify excessive daytime sleepiness and this condition and other conditions of excessive sleepiness.
- Social and professional relationships. People may think that the individual falling asleep or appearing to lose consciousness suddenly while eating, talking, working or shopping is faking or purposely doing so. It is not uncommon for a narcoleptic to be misinterpreted as lazy or rude.
- Intimate relationships. Extreme sleepiness may cause low sex drive and impotence, adding further complications to your relationship.
- Memory and attention. Some studies report that people with narcolepsy have problems with memory and attention. Excessive tiredness may be contributory.
