Common symptoms of narcolepsy
The symptoms of Narcolepsy vary greatly from person to person, so no two people experience it the same way. It is a chronic condition and symptoms may occur daily or just occasionally. The symptoms can change over time, as well.
Narcolepsy can affect men and women at any age. However, it is more common between the ages of 10 to 25. Initial diagnosis of Narcolepsy proves to be difficult as symptoms manifest over time. It is estimated that 80% remain undiagnosed and untreated due to the difference in symptom manifestation. The symptoms of narcolepsy include:
- Daytime sleepiness
- Sudden loss of muscle tone
- Sleep paralysis
During a sleep attack, all of these symptoms occur. When you’re playing a video game or writing, you may experience a sleep attack. It is possible that you will not remember doing this task when you wake up. During sleep attacks, people with narcolepsy may lose muscle strength and be unable to move.
Narcoleptics may also suffer from other sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnoea and may act out their dreams while they sleep, such as flailing their arms or trying to walk around.
