DAILY DIFFICULTIES FOR THOSE WITH NARCOLEPSY
Narcolepsy is a serious sleep disorder that requires careful management by a sleep medicine specialist. With proper treatment, many people who suffer from narcolepsy can reduce their risk of experiencing complications dramatically.
One of the most distressing complications to many people with narcolepsy is the general lack of understanding about their condition. Some people assume that someone with narcolepsy is lazy and unmotivated because of their excessive drowsiness. Narcolepsy can also interfere with personal relationships because it diminishes sex drive and because intense feelings can trigger symptoms. There is also the risk of physical harm that is caused by uncontrolled sleep attacks.
The first key to treating narcolepsy is getting an accurate diagnosis, and ensure you are not suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome. There are several resources available to help you cope and adjust to your diagnosis. Additionally, you may have questions about how narcolepsy could affect you at work or worse, while driving. Our staff will be here to dispel myths about narcolepsy and discuss your narcolepsy treatment options.
