Narcolepsy is a serious and potentially disabling condition that causes severe daytime sleepiness interfering with function and also causes poor sleep at night.
About one in a thousand Americans is affected; the prevalence of narcolepsy is similar to that of MS or Parkinson’s disease.
Many patients with narcolepsy experience temporary weakness of the limbs or other body parts when stressed or emotional. This condition is called cataplexy.
While a cure has not been found, there are many effective treatments available.
