Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is a persistent sleep disorder that disrupts the normal sleep-wake cycle. People affected by the day are drained throughout the day, and many times a day, they may experience an overwhelming urge to sleep. Cataplexy, which is a sudden loss of muscle tone in response to intense emotion, is another common feature of narcolepsy. Most people with narcolepsy have cataplexy, as well as asthma. However, some do not, allowing researchers to distinguish two main types of the condition: narcolepsy with cataplexy and narcolepsy without cataplexy. Narcolepsy also has an effect on nighttime sleep. Sleep paralysis is also present in many people with narcolepsy, which is an inability to move or speak for a short period of time when falling asleep or awakening. Some people with narcolepsy have all of the disorder's major signs, while others have only one or two, while some have none.
