Slide 1: ==== ==== For free videos and the latest information about narcolepsy, please visit our site http://blogs4u.biz/narcolepsy/ ==== ==== Narcolepsy is a rare condition in which people fall asleep at the oddest moments, almost always when they want to keep awake. This disorder is more neurological in nature. The brains sends sleep-inducing messages to the body at unpredictable and inappropriate moments. They find themselves overwhelmed by the need to sleep at the oddest moments of the day in the midst of any activity. Often, a narcoleptic falls asleep when he or she is engaged in activities such as attending a meeting, watching a movie, eating, or conversing. Narcolepsy can be dangerous when a patient falls asleep in front of the steering wheel while driving or while cooking. Most people suffering from narcolepsy aren't aware of when and how they fall asleep or of how sleepy they actually are. Often family members, friends, and colleagues have to convince them to seek the help of a doctor. Narcolepsy can be identified through five major symptoms; insomnia and sleep fragmentation, excessive sleep during daytime, cataplexy, sleep paralysis, and hypnagogic hallucinations. In some cases, patients experience only one symptom while others experience all the five. Excessive Daytime Sleep This symptom heralds the onset of narcolepsy. All narcolepsy patients experience this symptom. The desire to go to sleep is so overpowering that the patient can do nothing about it. In spite of their most sincere attempts, they are not able to overcome it. This desire to sleep, commonly known as sleep attack, comes several times per day and lasts for a few minutes. Fragmented Sleep and Insomnia This is another common symptom of narcolepsy. Narcoleptics do not find it easy to fall asleep at night although they can easily sleep during the day. Even if they do fall asleep, they find themselves waking up several times. In other words, their sleep does the follow the normal REM/nonREM pattern. Sleep Paralysis About fifty percent of the people suffering from this disorder experience this symptom. For a long time before falling asleep or on waking, the patient will not be able to move or talk. Cataplexy The condition of being unable to move one's muscle is called cataplexy. Cataplexy is short term,
Slide 2: and about fifty percent of the people suffering from narcolepsy experience this disorder. Cataplexy is due to a nonfunctional part of REM. Often, it is triggered by strong emotions. In extreme cases, the patient's knees buckle under him or her, the jaws and neck become weak, and he or she might collapse on the ground. In spite of the fact that the person looks asleep and can't talk, they are very much awake and know what is going on. Hypnagogic Hallucination People experiencing this symptom see and hear very realistic, frightening images and sounds and experience weird physical sensations. These are experienced as dreams just before falling asleep or just before waking up. People experiencing this symptom find it hard to distinguish between reality and dream. Usually, these hallucinations are terrifying and are associated with sleep paralysis. Narcolepsy is also associated with other minor symptoms such as migraine headache, problems with concentration and memory, blurred vision, and automatic behavior, which continues for a long time. Automatic behaviour means a person suffering from narcolepsy usually performing a task incorrectly. For example, he or she could go on writing past a page or put a turkey into the dishwasher, instead of in the oven. Narcolepsy is a dangerous condition. If neglected and left untreated, it could absolutely wreck the patient's life.
