I'm having a few issues with my cataplexy at the moment and need some advice. I take a dance class one or two times a week and am finding it hard to stop my knees from buckling directly after the sessions finishes. Today I was sort of flagging towards the end of the session and when I walked towards the benches to get my water bottle I felt the tell tale weakness starting in my kness and fell down twice. It took quite a while for the strength to come back (longer than usual) and for me to feel like I was no longer being supported by jelly. The thing is when this happens a lot of people get worried that I am fainting and it takes a lot of effort to try and explain to them that am ok and what cataplexy is. I get so embarassed by the whole thing and feel like crawling under a rock .
It be would nice if I could gain some control over it and leads me to my question. Does anyone have any tips for cutting down cataplexy episodes with exercise?? Does it make a difference how hard you push yourself or whether you've had many sleep attacks during the day?
ANY advice much greatly apprieciated
