The Doctor Says I May Have Narcolepsy.Hello,
I just saw a sleep specialist who suprised me by saying he thought I may have narcolepsy. I have always been into my sleep and never feel as if I have had enough. My friends always made jokes because I could not stay awake at the drive-in or anything that was after about 9pm. When I came home from the doctor and ran this idea past those who are close to me, they all said no way! Narcoleptics just fall asleep anywhere. While I have fallen asleep waiting in offices and almost always took a nap at lunch if I could squeeze it in, I don't just fall asleep in the middle of a conversation. I do fight daily to stay awake and often times feel as if I am just waiting until time to go to bed. I thought I must have apnea and just not be getting enough sleep at night. I have to schedule my sleep study as soon as I can fit it in my schedule.
